Thank You,

Why is the article located at not relevant enough to be included in the external links?

It is written by a very well known art-historian and makes the interesting point that Rembrandt did, in fact, use impressionist techniques 400 years before the impressionist movement.

I am not entirely satisfied with our selection of his works. We say: Having achieved youthful success as a portrait painter, Rembrandt's later years were marked by personal tragedy and financial hardships. Yet his etchings and paintings were popular throughout his lifetime, his reputation as an artist remained high ... Rembrandt's greatest creative triumphs are exemplified especially in his portraits of his contemporaries, self-portraits and illustrations of scenes from the Bible. Well, selfportraits we have to many of in the gallery really, but we removed portraits lately. We should have more portraits, more organized after themes and not entirely timeline, more - of the great works he had, genre painting, portraits, and so on.

Just as Nabokov had no use for social, moral or political advocacy in art, he was equally disinterested in classifying art by themes or generalities, looking instead into the details of a work of art in order to extract its essence.

Rembrandt's legacy and influence so great, why we have not a (least) section for him?[edit]

The literature on Rembrandt's life and artistic output is huge and could fill a small library! So why:

+ This 'good' article lacks extensive sections about Rembrandt’s extraordinary achievement as a draftsman (see notes by David Hockney in his interviews about Rembrandt's draughtsmanship) and as a printmaker (he was the greatest etcher of all time , and along Durer, one of the greatest and most original printmakers in history).

+ This 'good' article lacks an important section about Rembrandt's legacy and influence (both contemporary and posthumous) on art and intellectual world in general, especially in France and Germany (19th century-20th century). Please read quotes of Francisco Goya (I have had three masters, Nature, Velázquez, and Rembrandt), Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (Rembrandt the Thinker), Eugène Delacroix (Perhaps we shall one day find that Rembrandt is a greater painter than Raphael), Auguste Rodin (Compare me with Rembrandt! What sacrilege! With Rembrandt, the colossus of Art! What are you thinking of, my friend! We should prostrate ourselves before Rembrandt and never compare anyone with him!), Marc Chagall (Neither Imperial Russia, nor the Russia of the Soviets needs me. They don't understand me. I am a stranger to them. I'm certain Rembrandt loves me.)

+ This 'good' article lacks an important section about cultural depictions of Rembrandt‎ (in novels and films). zingvin (talk) 20:00, 10 Jan 2017 (UTC)
