Visitors to Amsterdam will now be able to follow a tourist trail unveiled in honour of 17th-century artist Rembrandt van Rijn, reports Dutch News. The trail will follow the path the artist, who died in 1669, is said to have taken between his home and place of work in Ouderkerk aan de Amstel, nine kilometres south of the city. Every year for the next 10 years a commemorative statue will be unveiled by the Rembrandt Foundation, according to news agency ANP says Dutch News. The first, sculpted in 1968 by Wim van Hoorn, has been unveiled on Professor Tulpplein.
