Aert de Gelder was in the 1660s one of Rembrandt's last pupils. The influence of Rembrandt's late painting style is recognisable in his work, but often with a lighter colour palette. He primarily painted Biblical subjects and portraits. Because of their Rembrandt-like character, many of De Gelder's paintings were, in the past, attributed to Rembrandt. The painting of Abraham and the angels in the museum was, in the 19th century, thought to be by Rembrandt.
