‘The Night Watch’ comes to life


I received an email from a friend this week with an entertaining you tube link – it comes from the Netherlands, and was part of a promotion to get people to go to the art gallery there. They brought a painting – ‘The Night Watch’ by Rembrandt, painted in 1642 – to life then used the results to advertise the art museum and also put it on you tube. I have put the link below, plus a picture of the painting (above). Have a look at the picture before you click on the link (if you click on the picture it should enlarge). I love the way the internet makes it possible for us to see how creative people can be in all kinds of ways – this is just one small example.
