Plaque by Joost Bilhamer
Painted by Rembrandt some 24 years after the “The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Tulp.” The corpse is that of Joris “Black Jack” Fonteijn, executed on January 17, 1656. Rembrandt’s studio was a few blocks from the Surgeon’s Guild hall, in the Waag, where the dissection was made.
Painted by Jan van Neck
Ruysch was renowned for meticulous dissections and for using “hot rapidly coagulating fluids” in the preparation of anatomic specimens. He was also infamous for his zymoglyphic dioramas.
Originally built in 1346 for the Begijntjes. House #34 is oldest in Amsterdam. Now operated as a retirement center by the city.
Designed by Gerrit Rietveld, it was built in 1973. The museum holds the largest collection of works by Van Gogh, including more than 200 paintings and 1,000 drawings.
"And my aim in my life is to make pictures and drawings, as many and as well as I can; then, at the end of my life, I hope to pass away, looking back with love and tender regret, and thinking, 'Oh, the pictures I might have made!'"
