21st Century Rembrandt

Rembrandt is the undisputed Master of Dutch Golden Age of paintings. His Nachwacht (“The Nightwatch”) is the most precious piece of Amsterdam’s most important art museum of that period, the Rijksmuseum. The 21st Century tribute to the guy is a tower. The tallest you see in the picture. Right on the Amstel River, with an eternal blinking light on top, which I see straight from my bed at night.
