Several years ago, I was able to view some original Rembrandt etchings on display at a nearby museum. What fascinated me most was this artist’s capacity to honor the human experience without conforming to the then popular ideals of perfectionism. In other words, while other artists busied themselves creating lavish and idealized depictions of royal images in grandiose proportions, Rembrandt captured the noble inner qualities of ordinary human beings in the most humbling of circumstances. He became famous not for the elegance which he bestowed upon his subjects but by drawing out an inner beauty.
When I stare at his iconic portraits crafted with a dramatic use of light and dark tones, I can’t help but believe that the light he used to illuminate faces was not shining down upon them but emanating from within. I would never compare myself to such a renowned artist, and although I have never lifted a paintbrush to a canvas, I seek to emulate this spirit of compassion every time I meet with someone.
