Rembrandt and the Amur Tigers
“I love Rembrandt and I love wildlife, especially the Amur tigers. I don’t think I need to explain to the Russian people and to the Russian government the reason why – everyone here is intimately familiar with that kind of love,” declared Thomas S. Kaplan, the owner and founder, together with his wife Daphne, of the famous New York-based Leiden Collection. A great public speaker, he almost sounds like a preacher who deeply believes in his mission. “What do Rembrandt and the Amur tigers have in common?” he asks. “The power of beauty!” Russian with English translation.
