Happy Birthday to the man who needs no introductions, Rembrant Harmenszoon van Rijn, or better known as simply Rembrandt! The artist, born on July 15, 1606, in Leiden, Dutch Republic, for some unknown reason added the silent “D” to his name, which originally was spelled just Rembrant; Harmenszoon, in Dutch tradition, is the “son of”, meaning that the artist’s father’s name was Harmen, and van Rijn, deriving from the place that the family was from, which, in this case, is in the region of the river Rhine, Rembrandt’s name means Rembrandt, son of Harmen, from the Rhine river region. 199 more words
