ART FOR WRITERS Without doubt, my favourite all-time painting Number 7 from the archive
I didn’t have to think about which painting I would choose today. It had to be Rembrandt’s The Jewish Bride
This is only oil and pigment and egg (or whatever painters used in the 17th century), but look at what Rembrandt did with it. No fireworks. No drama. Just a very quiet and private moment captured forever. It is the picture I use most often in class because it is so rich in possibilities.
If you want to find out more about the painting have a look at the original post published last November.
