BOOK EXCERPT:

The Biblical Rembrandt presents the human Rembrandt in the context of his faith. That faith can be studied only by an intense look at this paintings, etchings, and drawings depicting biblical persons, scenes, and moments. About Rembrandt's life, we know very little that is certain, but he has left us abundant testimony of his sensitive reading of the Bible. Written from the perspective of a biblical specialist who has pored over Rembrandt's testimony, Durham writes not for the art historian, but for those who love the Bible, for those who love Rembrandt, and for those who want to know more about the meeting of this Dutchman and his biblical text. Durham confesses he has lived with the (changing) canon of Rembrandt's works for more than forty years, with the biblical texts he loved open before me. This book is the summary of that experience. Not every work of Rembrandt based on the Bible is discussed: that would have required commentary on more than 900 works. Durham has selected his favorites, the ones that seem to him most reflective of Rembrandt's faith, about 130 works in all. Each of these paintings, etchings, and drawings is reproduced in the context in which it is described, the paintings in full color. Where important details are difficult to see, they are isolated, and enlarged as necessary. In his biblical works Rembrandt invites us to read the Bible just as he read it, in personal terms: flawed, as he was; reaching, as he did; and experiencing the Bible as a book about ourselves.

BOOK EXCERPT:

"This book embeds Rembrandt's art in the pluralistic religious context of seventeenth-century Amsterdam, arguing for the restoration of this historical dimension to contemporary discussions of the artists. By incorporating this perspective, Zell confirms and revises one of the most forceful myths attached to Rembrandt's art and life: his presumed attraction and sensitivity to the Jews of early modern Amsterdam."--BOOK JACKET.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The most beautiful Bible stories retold by children's authors and illustrated with Rembrandt's finest biblical prints from the collection of the Rembrandt House MuseumThe authors contributing to this book are Holland's finest children's authorsWhat would you have thought if you had been in the stable where Jesus lay in a manger? What if you had seen Abraham with your own eyes as he was about to sacrifice his own son? What if you could have seen Jesus overcome with doubt? Or the return of the Prodigal Son? Or Jesus hanging on the cross? This book contains some of the most beautiful Bible stories, retold from a unique point of view. Famous Dutch children's authors have let their imaginations run free to give a voice to some of the eyewitnesses depicted in Rembrandt's etchings. Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669) was a unique storyteller. His etchings of biblical stories give the impression that he was right there, drawing on the spot, often including anonymous eyewitnesses. Rembrandt's Bible Stories tells these stories, the stories of ordinary people - and animals - caught up in extraordinary events. Stories about the essence of compassion, comfort, forgiveness, sorrow and charity.
