One of the greatest painters in Dutch history is Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669). He lived and worked in Amsterdam and his statue is since long standing on the Rembrandtplein in Amsterdam.
His most famous painting is The Night Watch ( de Nachtwacht) wich is on prominent display in the Rijksmusem in Amsterdam.
Two artist made a 3D version of this painting, a group of 22 statues in bronze. As part of the celebrations of the Rembrandtyear in 2006, this group was placed in front of the statue of Rembrandt on the Rembrandtplein.

“The idea of the project is that people will be able to view representations of historical characters living in Amsterdam in those old times. You will also be able to touch them and even walk among the figures from this world-famous masterpiece, a truly educational experience. This is a fully “sculptured” painting showing in more than full-length all twenty-two figures of the painting, even those figures that are not entirely visible on the canvas. It will certainly make make an indelible impression on the spectator.”
