The Dutch Artist, Rembrandt was born on July 15, 1606 in Leiden, the Netherlands. While Rembrandt was already famous during his life, his fame was greatly enhanced during the 19th century. The Netherlands looked for national heroes and symbols. The Belgians had Rubens, so the Dutch embraced Rembrandt.
