ART FOR WRITERS Without doubt, my favourite all-time painting Number 7 from the archive

Jewish WeddingI didn’t have to think about which painting I would choose today. It had to be Rembrandt’s The Jewish Bride

If you want to find out more about the painting have a look at the original post published last November.

Or just study these two faces and write…
