Rembrandt and the Gospel by W. A. Visser t' Hooft


Rembrandt and the Gospel by W. A. Visser t' Hooft

At the beginning of his career Rembrandt was influenced by the theatrical art of the Counter-Reformation and used the Bible merely as a storehouse of subjects to paint. Gradually, in the tragedies of his own ife, Rembrandt developed a style which in ts quality makes him unique as an interpreter of the Bible as a whole. He became a biblical painter. Dr t'Hooft summarizes the biblical message of Rembrandt's art in the works of Ecclesiastes: 'I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God hath done t, that en should fear before him. W. A. Visser t'Hooft was General Secretary of the World Council of Churches.
