This next photograph emulates Rembrandt’s The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp, a 1632 oil on canvas painting held in the Mauritshuis museum in The Hague in the Netherlands. 

The original painting portrays Dr. Tulp, a Dutch surgeon and mayor of Amsterdam, conducting an anatomy lesson. Nothing like you would see in classrooms today. 

These mechanics, however, are not looking at the body of a corpse as in the original, they are getting a lesson in mechanics. 

Fabris doesn’t stop there. He recreates more of Rembrandt’s masterpieces including a series of portraits, which you can see at farbisphoto.com.
