Rembrandt

Rembrandt

My name is Rembrandt the Bear and I am named after one of the greatest painters and printmakers in European art history and the most important in Dutch history, Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn His contributions to art came in a period that historians call the Dutch Golden Age.

Now Rembrandt had a wife called Saskia van Uylenburgh and here’s our connection with the artist and our bear. As you know if you’ve read our introduction on our home page, this website is the initiative and brainchild of Tolly Dolly Posh aged 10, and Tolly has a big sister called Saskia. Their mummy studied Fashion and Textile design at University and came across the name Saskia whilst studying the history of art and the works of Rembrandt. Here she learnt of Rembrandt’s wife ‘Saskia’ and liked the name so much she decided that her first daughter would be called Saskia. So now I, Rembrandt the Bear, am to be reunited with the home city of Rembrandt the Artist I hope in an exciting journey to Amsterdam. The only trouble is I don’t know how I’m going to get there or what route I will take.

I want to visit the city of Amsterdam and to be taken to the Rembrandt House Museum where I can see the works of my namesake. So if you have found me and please keep this objective in mind.

Take good care of me. Keep me for a few days or weeks and keep a record of what we get upto. It would be great if you could send home some photos to my home. You can do that here by completing this form.

In the meantime thanks for visiting my page.
