I was unaware that his role as a teacher was so important to understanding his place in the pantheon of visual art. So, i learned something today. Winning!

The expressions on his face are where Rembrandt shines. His Christ is a man first and a god second.

Amazing works of art I'm shocked by the imagination, attention to detail, and experimentation.

It made me laugh that Rembrandt added a dog to the Last Supper.

I truly enjoyed a close-up of the artistry, but, was often distracted and even annoyed by the somewhat cluelessness of the of the commentaries provided via the headsets, particularly, when the notes did not match what I was seeing with my eye, for example, telling me that the young boy is likely making notes of the teaching that Jesus is presenting, when, as a rabbi (which in Hebrew means "teacher), I know full well that young people at the outer edge of the circle are rarely noticing or committing to memory or iPhone a record of what's being taught, or, telling the viewer that the artist had reached back thousands of years in an effort to surround his Jesus with realia by depicting the breaking/sharing of bread with specifically braided "challah" bread, which he'd observed among the Ashkenazic Jews, something that any historian of food culture knows is anachronistic, or, at the very end of my tour, conveying to me that the Jesus portrayed is warm or compassionate when I can see that his face and body language is indeed not, but, rather, the painting of the guy in the neighborhood is a painting of someone who is engaged and engaging and has something to say and would care about what his fellow human beings' experience is and what they're feeling. ... The bottom line -- the punchline is that I feel that the commentary is flawed because they make the same mistake that so many artists prior made, simply repeating what is expected: that's annoying and, potentially dangerous, because, people, being people, will defer to experts rather than to their own eyes. I think the last two large portraits are, if you will, a test, an emotional test presented by the artist: Do you know which the real JC is, that is, can you sense which figure truly has and mirrors the Divine Light. If you say the one depicted as Jesus, albeit a much more "humane/human" realistic Jesus than prior images, you're misguided; you missed the one among us, who although doesn't possess the "clues/trappings/cues" of the Christ has that light in the eye and directs his gaze directly upon and toward you. The commentators failed the task and would do well to take off their credentials and look directly at and see what's presented.
