This Dutch painter is best known for ‘The Night Watch’, and for his attention to detail and use of light called 'Chiaroscuro'. He painted people in a recognisable way with wrinkles and expressions captured in elegant detail. Many people were fascinated to learn that Rembrandt wasn't his last name or his birth name. For reasons that are unclear, he added the silent “d” to his signature, changing it from Rembrant to Rembrandt, in 1633.
A replica of Rembrandt’s Amsterdam house equipped with furniture was also on display to show how he and his family would have lived and worked in the 17th century.
