Rembrandt gets his own route through Amsterdam

Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669), one of the Netherlands’ most famous painters, is to have the route he walked between his house and the village of Ouderkerk aan de Amstel marked by a special tourist trail.

The Rembrandt Foundation said on Monday that it plans to mark the route with a series of ten statues and will unveil one a year, reports news agency ANP.
The first, on the Professor Tulpplein, will be unveiled on Tuesday. It shows the young Rembrandt and was sculpted in 1968 by the late Wim van Hoorn.
