Hansken - Rembrandt


It's time for another Rembrandt...

By Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (1606-1669)

Love his sketches and since one of my sisters' current fascination is elephants, I thought this was appropriate. :-) I also learned all sorts of things about Hanskin herself on Wikipedia...

Thanks for reading,

Rembrandt's elephant looks so realistic, just like the real thing.

This sketch hits the sweet spot somewhere between the zoo and the art museum. What a character! She saw more of Europe than many of its people at the time.

And hey, if anyone were to pick my pocket, I'd prefer it were an elephant. ; )
