Rembrandt as a Mural

A electricity sub station at the Rembrandt square in Amsterdam has brightened with images of etchings by the painter Rembrandt (1606-1669).

All the four sides of the building has a different image.


I am linking these to Monday Mural

  9. How appropriate. So easy on the eye as some murals are such a riot of colour they make my head hurt.

  14. Prachtig. Meer gemeentes zouden dit moeten doen.

  15. Those things are big eyesores on their own, so why not use them to showcase art.

  20. Dearest Marianne,
    Quite unusual for an electricity sub station to decorate their outside walls in such a great way. Wish we could see more of those around!
    Hugs,

  22. Painting these transformer boxes is a nice way to camouflage something that's not always so pretty. Nice find!
