I hope you all have heard about Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn, the famous dutch painter and etcher (July 15, 1606 - October 4, 1669). He is considered as one of the greatest painters of Europe and the Netherlands.
A considerable number of his creations were self portraits. Night watch, The jewish bride, The Return of the prodigal son, Danae are some of his very famous paintings according to some experts.
If you open Google you will find his painting as the subject of Google's doodle. Rembrandt's 407th birthday is the subject of Google's doodle on Monday, July 15th, that we see when we open our dear Google :)
Thank you all at Google doodle for remembering a great painter like Rembrandt.
We all doodle sometimes. Likewise, Google founders Larry and Sergey in 1998 doodled their Company logo to indicate that they were 'out of the Office', their users and thus the concept was born. Later Google began making changes on their logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of famous artists, pioneers, and scientists. Great idea ! Now, as we all have experienced, this activity makes us all remember great people and take note of many important occasions and events.
We, the users can email Google doodle our suggestions -firstname.lastname@example.org
