    This was quoted by Rembrandt in the 1936 film about the painter. It was quoted several times and I can't find the quote and was wondering if, indeed, it does appear.

    Vanitas Vanitatum, Omnia Vanitas.


    A biblical phrase was the inspiration for Charles Gilbert's allegorical and ambiguous illusion. The phrase translates as; “Vanity of vanities, all is vanity.” It is from Ecclesiastes 1:2, in which King Solomon expounds upon the vanities of the world.
