Rembrandt was indeed seen strolling the streets of Gloucester and was soon to be found in the beautiful cathedral itself. He was very impressed with the amazing scale of this historic building which must have taken decades to build. As he quietly walked through the aisles and cloisters he received some peculiar looks as people passed him by. What was it he thought? Had he not brushed his hair? Was there something wrong with him in some way? He really couldn’t work out why so many people found it so odd to see a bear in a cathedral.

Ignoring the onlookers Rembrandt continued his exploration of the cathedral. What interested him most of all were the collection of nearly 80 sculptures of all shapes and sizes that were presented in and around the cathedral. Some names he recognised such ad Damien Hurst and Lynn Chadwick as well as Sir Eduardo Paolozzi. But there were many he didn’t know of. He soon came to realise though that these were modern artists displaying work and there was not to be any signs of his namesake’s work from the 1700’s.

So Rembrandt continued to explore the amazing collection and was last seen taking a rest next to a sculpture by Ralph Brown called ‘Clochard’. After that we’re not sure what happened to Rembrandt.
