The prodigal son

This painting by Rembrandt van Rijn can be found on #Commons.  The original can be found in the Hermitage.

I was looking for a picture of the "prodigal son" because my nephew returns home today from a world trip. His father and mother are happy to have him home and as he is vegetarian, I am sure a fatted calf will not be on the menu.

Anyway, the 35.95 MB file can be found on Commons, but there is no template for the Hermitage. As a consequence we can not even express how many page views the heritage preserved in the Hermitage generates. It would be good to be able to do so, it may open doors..
