Remember my post What is inside the bag?
Well, I am going to tell you the story behind the medallion necklace here,
Museum het Rembrandthuis (The Rembrandt House Museum) is actually a house in Jodenbreestraat in Amsterdam,Netherlands, where Rembrandt lived and painted for nearly twenty years. It is now a museum. We visited this world heritage UNESCO approved site, when way back than Rembrandt purchased the house in 1639 and lived there until he went bankrupt in 1656, back than all his belongings were auctioned. Thanks to the detailed inventory and catalogue for the auction, and also some drawings by Rembrandt, the museum has an unusually good idea of the contents, which has allowed the museum to reconstruct the appearance of the rooms with similar period items.
My husband and I both love Rembrandt, me especially! The dramatic light he use in his painting is just magical, capturing the exact moment and tell so many secrets behind the making ~or at least that's what I feel about his paintings/works. When we visit a museum, we always ended up in the museum shops because we love collecting books. On this particular trip, I purchase the collector coins. And when I am back in Bali, I turned the coin into a medallion pendant. Love it!
