"The greatest intelligence cannot make art happen " - James A McNeill Whistler (1834 – 1903)

'Sure Rembrandt is depressed, they stole everything he had but left his paintings.'

Rembrandt in the midst of the desolation left by burglars who stole everything except his paintings. The manner in which most people value artists and view their creations is symbolized by the thief who, in the 1990s, broke into the British artist David Hockney’s residence. With a grasp of art economics most painters only dream of, he chose to steal electronic household objects only, disregarding completely the original Hockneys on the walls.

The artist’s use of pen and sepia ink is prominent in this work, one of the earliest of the, The Adventures of Rembrandt series. The watercolour is painted onto bristol board, instead of the more absorbent handmade artist watercolour paper of the later works.
