Cook Islands 2010 Masterpieces of Art Rembrandt Van Rijn 3 Oz Silver Proof Coin. A numismatic masterpiece, made of 3 oz of pure silver 999 with 16 authentic swarovski crystals inlaid in this 55 mm coin, issued by Cook Islands.The painting is on display in Staatliche Museen, Berlin, along with other famous artworks of the Baroque Art period. As usual in a Rembrandt portrait, this is a combination of keen psychological analysis with a subtle, powerful music of lights and shadows.
His faces are always full of meaning and of character, strongly individualized through emphasis on a few distinctive contours. They are never bland, impersonal, regular masks, but bear the marks of experience, thought and feeling, which tempt us to wonder what reserves of personality lie behind them.In this psychological interest Rembrandt is akin to Leonardo da Vinci, and also in his reliance upon soft, mysterious shadows as the basis of his form. There is little range or brilliance of color in either. But Rembrandt had profited by sixteenth century Venetian painting, and knew how to blend his colors with light in a way that Leonardo did not, and so to make the most of what he used. 3 oz of pure silver in proof quality. Decorated with 16 Swarovski crystals.
