North Carolina Museum of Art today. They are having Rembrandt in America right now and its only there for a few more weeks so I knew I needed to get there quick. So, I drove up there today and I think it was totally worth it! I learned a lot about Rembrandt and especially the history of Rembrandt paintings in America, which was the focus of the exhibit. I was amazed at some of his pieces - they were so realistic, as if the subject was a real person sitting right there in front of you! Here are some photos of pieces that I saw:
