This is what I love about Rembrandt. He has a way of making the smallest gestures capture you at a gut level. I've sheltered kiddies while they decide about dogs. I've explained to my dog that not everybody will love you right away. For another example of Rembrandt's ability to capture deep human feeling with the merest of motions, please see "The Jewish Bride."
