Girl with a broom

A girl with a broom by Rembrandt van Ryn, Dutch school, 1606-1669, canvas, height 42 1/4 in., width 36 in. Signed and dated 1651. 
Andrew Mellon Collection 
A soft shaft of light picks out a young girl pausing in her daily household and lost in thought. She leans gently on a fence and holds her well-used broom.

What could be more mundane or more trivial? And yet it is just such a simple scene that Rembrandt has infused with great depth of feeling.
This child may be seen in other of Rembrandt's paintings of the early 1650's. She may have helped Hendrickje Stoffels, Rembrandt's faithful companion for about eighteen years with the chores and she was probably very grateful for the chance to rest and daydream as she poses for the master.
Rembrandt often persuaded members of his household and friends to model for him, especially during the latter part of his life when outside commissions were scarce and financial difficulties serious.

Yet there's more than just a recognizable kitchen girl here. Mysteriously Rembrandt weave into the child's face a depth of meaning and of understanding that would seem far beyond her years.

A girl with a broom was painted when Rembrandt was about 45. It was during this mature phase of his life that he painted some of his most profound and intriguing portraits.

How to clean a painting(1)

If you ever decide to clean your paintings you can try this easy way to have a good result. 
For this action you'll need:
1) A soft bristle brush.
2) Unsliced doughty bread.
NOTE: Never use water or solvent to clean paintings! If it's an extremely valuable or an antique, you can use a professional! :-)
After you start, as you can see in this video, imagine, while using the brush, that you're dusting pollen from flower petals :-)
Good luck from now and enjoy the result!

Magia metaloplastiei


Metaloplastia nu se poate învăţa, ci doar "fura." Nu este o meserie care se poate învăţa. Ca să faci un tablou este nevoie de foarte multă răbdare şi dăruire. Nu se pot învăţa etapele prelucrării tablei ca pe o simplă poezie, pe de rost, trebuie să simţi căldura metalului în mîini. Teoretic este simplu dar este nevoie de multă precizie şi pasiune care să vină din interiorul sufletului.

Sînt mai multe etape pînă la finalizarea unei astfel de lucrări. Prima dată se modelează imaginea pe o tablă, apoi se conturează cu un instrument special ascuţit chipul sau peisajul pe care vrem să le redăm. După care se curăţă şi se lustruieşte cu nisip întreaga lucrare. Culorile se obţin prin încălzirea materialului.
