Two Thirds of the Nine Days: Rembrandt

Jeremiah Lamenting the Destruction of Jerusalem (Rembrandt, 1630)

Though Jeremiah prophesied the destruction of Jerusalem,  he was powerless to change the unfolding of events that brought about its ruin.  Rembrandt   (Dutch 1606-1669) depicts this tragic figure mourning the burning of the city around him at the hands of Nebuchadnezzar during the destruction of the First Temple.
