"I tend to be cynical about a lot of things, but Maya Angelou is somebody that no matter how much I pick her apart, she still has integrity. She was a victim of incest and rape, and she worked as a stripper. And now she’s a literary icon and Nobel Laureate. It goes to show that life is cumulative, and you can’t devalue any type of experience."

The Music Party (1626). Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (Dutch, 1606-1669). Oil on wood. Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam.
The young woman is reading the music from the sheet, singing and beating time. The two men are accompanying her on their instruments - the young man on the harp and the older man on a viola da gamba. An older woman is reading over the girl’s shoulder, listening attentively with her hand on her chin. In the foreground is a violin, a lute and a pile of books.
