If Rembrandt were a football fan what team would he like?
This is a gift for my brother, who is a big Minnesota Vikings fan. I had the portrait all done- just as a Rembrandt copy of one of his self-portraits and I didn't like it, because basically what do you do with a huge painting of a guy who is not related to you. My DH, the eternal sports fanatic, suggested a viking helmet and giving it to the equally fanatical brother for his birthday. I thought the logo on the jacket added a bit of kitsch as well.
