    Über den Künstler

    Rembrandt van Rijn

    Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (1606-1669), widely known as Rembrandt, was a Dutch painter and etcher of the Baroque era. Born on July 15, 1606, in Leiden, Netherlands, Rembrandt is considered one of the greatest artists in history. Renowned for his mastery of light and shadow, his profound understanding of human emotions, and his technical prowess, Rembrandt's contributions to art are unparalleled.

    During his career, Rembrandt produced an extensive body of work encompassing portraits, landscapes, historical and biblical scenes, as well as numerous self-portraits. His paintings are characterized by their realistic depiction, nuanced expressions, and rich, atmospheric textures. Through his innovative use of chiaroscuro, Rembrandt was able to create a dramatic interplay of light and darkness, lending a profound depth to his compositions.

    Rembrandt's artistic achievements extended beyond his paintings. As an etcher, he revolutionized the medium, pushing its boundaries and elevating it to a fine art form. His etchings display remarkable skill, capturing intricate details and showcasing his ability to convey emotions and narratives in a more intimate and accessible manner.

    Despite facing financial challenges later in life, Rembrandt's artistic legacy remains unparalleled. His works continue to inspire artists and art enthusiasts worldwide, with their timeless beauty and profound humanity. Rembrandt's impact on the art world endures, cementing his position as one of the most celebrated and influential artists of the Renaissance period.

    The Unemployed Philosopher's Guild

    The origins of the Unemployed Philosophers Guild are shrouded in mystery. Some accounts trace the Guild's birth to Athens in the latter half of the 4th century BCE. Allegedly, several lesser philosophers grew weary of the endless Socratic dialogue endemic in their trade and turned to crafting household implements and playthings. (Hence the assertions that Socrates quaffed his hemlock poison from a Guild-designed chalice, though vigorous debate surrounds the question of whether it was a "disappearing" chalice.)

    Others argue that the UPG dates from the High Middle Ages, when the Philosophers Guild entered the world of commerce by selling bawdy pamphlets to pilgrims facing long lines for the restroom. Business boomed until 1211 when Pope Innocent III condemned the publications. Not surprisingly, this led to increased sales, even as half our membership was burned at the stake.

    More recently, revisionist historians have pinpointed the birth of the Guild to the time it was still cool to live in New York City's Lower East Side. Two brothers turned their inner creativity and love of paying rent towards fulfilling the people's needs for finger puppets, warm slippers, coffee cups, and cracking up at stuff.

    Most of the proceeds go to unemployed philosophers (and their associates). A portion also goes to some groups working on profound causes.
