“Rembrandt: The Turn of the Key” by Zhenya Gershman (publ. 2014)

A major new insight into Rembrandt and his art

Zhenya Gershman, an artist and independent scholar, breathes new life into Rembrandt's art with visual evidence that no conventional art historian has ever seen. She convincingly demonstrates that Rembrandt was an early Freemason who underwent initiation into the sect and was a proud member, signing himself as such on his paintings. Freemasonry's focus on spiritual self-renewal leaves no doubt that Rembrandt, no matter what he painted, painted himself. Even his name is not what scholars think!
