Last Monday the St. Patrick’s Friends of Dismas group kicked off a study of the best selling book by Henri Nouwen, The Return of the Prodigal Son- A Story of Homecoming.
The theme of the first evening was- Encounter the Painting. The painting in question is Rembrandt’s famous portrayal of the parable which was one of his final works. There were a number of questions from the participants about the artist. To help us in our study I have prepared the following overview of - THE RETURN OF THE PRODIGAL SON By Rembrandt.

This summary is based on a paper entitled THE RETURN OF THE PRODIGAL SON AND REMBRANDT’S CREATIVE PROCESS written by Susan Donahue Kuretsky, at Vassar College. (Click on this link to view).
If you are in the St. Patrick’s area please join us as we continue our journey.
