Rembrandt van Rijn (1606–1669) was a Dutch painter and etcher. He is generally considered one of the greatest painters and printmakers in European art history and the most important in Dutch history.
- Kermit and Gonzo appeared in Miss Piggy's Art Masterpiece Calendar as Arisfroggle Contemplating the Bust of a Twerp, a spoof of van Rijn's "Aristotle with a Bust of Homer."
- As a reference within a reference, Joe Mathieu spoofed Norman Rockwell's "Triple Self Portrait" with Grover taking the place of the famed painter. And taking the place of the Rembrandt self portrait Rockwell included on the easel, is a Fat Blue Rembrandt self portrait.
