Rembrandt’s Facebook Timeline

in Art, Technology | June 7th, 2012

The Rijksmuseum, located in Amsterdam, houses famous paintings by Rembrandt, Vermeer, and other Dutch masters. Recently, the 212-year-old museum decided to get a little modern when it imagined what Rembrandt’s Facebook Timeline might look like. “I made a self-portrait. Let me know what you think!,” Rembrandt announces (in English!) 384 years ago — to which Peter Paul Rubens, a contemporary, responds, “Nice one!” And later Rembrandt announces, “Look what Johannes [Vermeer] made!,” pointing to the The Milk Maid, which already has over 5,000 “Likes.” And so the video goes.

You can find The Rijksmuseum on Facebook here, and our stimulating Facebook Page here, where we share our posts every day.
