Rembrandt saw and fell in love with a magnificent four-story home on the Jodenbreestraat. He purchased it on credit, incurring a heavy and continuing debt, and several years later discovered that the citizens of Amsterdam were no longer purchasing his paintings and in the end, his expensive house soon placed him in bankruptcy. One of my favorite rooms was the room which held things he collected through his lifetime (swords, sculptures, seashells, coral, etc) I would love to incorporate this into my home some day.
