If ever there was a painter that stood for something and used his art to make a stand, it was Rembrandt. If you have the chance to see the documentary “Rembrandt’s J’Accuse” by director Peter Greenaway (see the trailer below) or his film “Nightwatching”, you will learn how Rembrandt created “an indictment of guilt in paint”. A fascinating murder mystery, whose sordid details remain, even today, hidden in plain sight. It’s well worth a watch.
