An "Accurately Jewish Looking" Jesus
Jesus has traditionally been represented as a sort of doe-eyed Abercrombie & Fitch model, but it turns out Rembrandt had a different idea.
An upcoming exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art called "Rembrandt and the Face of Jesus" will show the Dutch artist striving for a more historical perspective.
As a curator told us at a Lotos Club luncheon the other day, Rembrandt's representations of Jesus are "very human, accurately Jewish-looking, and full of power."
But first, let me tell you that the museum's current exhibit of Italian designer Roberto Capucci's elaborate work is eye-poppingly good, filled with outfits made with such blazing imagination and daring geometry I'm ashamed I'd never heard of him.
So take a trip and check it out.
No matter what you look like, it's just a hop, skip, and a Peter Pan bus away.
