Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn

The brilliant Dutch artist Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn was born in the Dutch city of Leiden in a miller's family. From an early age, he showed interest in painting, and therefore he studied in the workshop of Jacob Swanenburg. In 1623 he moved to Amsterdam, where he fell into the hands of Pieter Lastman. Rembrandt opened his first workshop in Leiden, but in 1631 he nevertheless returned to Amsterdam, from where he never left again.

In 1876, one of the central squares of Amsterdam, Botermarkt, received its modern name - Rembrandt Square - in honor of the great artist. In 2013, a monument was unveiled in Yoshkar-Ola at the Russian"Big Volga"plein air where dozens of from 15 cities took part.

In the fall of 2013, the Amsterdam Embankment with a bronze monument to the great Dutch painter appeared in Yoshkar-Ola.

The monument was erected on November 1, 2013.

The sculptor is Kovalchuk Andrey Nikolaevich.
