Tony Szczudlo - King of the Realm Card_e

One of Tony Sczcudlo's greatest artistic influences is Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn, usually simply known as Rembrandt.

 

Rembrandt was a Dutch Golden Age painter, printmaker and draughtsman. An innovative and prolific master in three media, he is generally considered one of the greatest visual artists in the history of art and the most important in Dutch art history.

In a conversation with Tony, he credited Rembrandt as a huge influence on him growing up. He recalled being blown away when seeing Rembrandt's self-portrait painting, which hangs in the Uffizi in Florence.  Rembrandt's painting is the inspiration for Tony's take on "King of the Realm", a painting for a card for the Sorcery: Contested Realm TCG.  It is a self-portrait of Tony, with color elements that mirror that of the famous Rembrandt painting.
