BRINGING REMBRANDT TO GHANA

 

Inspired by Rembrandt

 

The global competition Inspired by Rembrandt was organized by the Wereldomroep-Radio Netherlands Worldwide in the Netherlands in 2006 within the celebrations of the 400th years of the Dutch Painter.

The contest sought to find the best follower of the Dutch Master and had more than 500 works from all over the world.

There were two prizes to be given; one by the Especial Jury and the other one from the Public Opinion.

“Bringing Rembrandt to Ghana”, a contemporary Ghanaian version of the Dutch artist’s famous masterpiece the Night Watch was chosen by a Jury of experts from hundreds of entries by artists around the globe. The ceremony was held at the Stopera (City Hall) in Amsterdam on December 14th. The Jury Chairman Ad’s-Gravesande stated that “there is no imitation or copying” stressing the artist’s original approach.
