Mood: Looking Playing: Painter man, by Creation

26 October 2005 was a very special day for Dutch author and sculptor Jan Wolkers.

The Rembrandt monument, made by Jan Wolkers for the famous seventeenth century painter, was unveiled then.

This was in the city of Leiden, where Rembrandt was born in 1605 (or 1606?); and where Jan Wolkers, born in Oegstgeest close to Leiden, had lived as well.

It was also Jan Wolkers’ eightieth birthday.

Finally, Wolkers’ new book was published that day.
