(Verse 1)
Rembrandt was a Dutch artist, born in sixteen-hundred, six.
Painted ninety self-portraits, and pictures of his son, Titus. His shapes
appear really round, by his use of light and shadow. His family dressed up
and modeled for him so he could paint pictures of Bible times. Rembrandt,
Rembrandt van Rijn.

Rembrandt, Rembrandt van Rijn. One of the best artists of all
times. Five hundred pictures he made, like The Stoning of St.

fear, hate, joy and love, St. Paul in Prison, The Ascension.

(Verse 2) 
Painted The Night Watch. It's a captain and his men lining
up for a parade. He depicted the textures great. Like leather boots and
wooden rifles, soft velvet and shiny metals. He painted; The Syndics of
the Draper's Guild, The Feast of Belshazzar, His momma reading
the Bible, and The Polish Rider.


(Ending) He died in sixteen-hundred and sixty nine; Rembrandt van Rijn.
