Rembrandt van Rijn brought a powerful intellect and astute psychological insight to his interpretations of biblical events.
According the Genesis 18:
"1. Then the LORD appeared to Abraham by the Oaks of Mamre in the heat of the day, while he was sitting at the entrance of his tent. 2. And Abraham looked up and saw three men standing nearby. When he saw them, he ran from the entrance of his tent to meet them and bowed low to the ground. 3. “My lord,” said Abraham, “if I have found favor in your sight, please do not pass your servant by.…"
Over the course of his career Rembrandt made about three hundred etchings. With many impressions of each image, his prints were seen by artists and collectors throughout Europe and brought the artist international fame.
