Newly discovered Rembrandt to be on show for the first time in Museum De Lakenhal
The media have confirmed the news that a painting that can be attributed to Rembrandt has been discovered by Jan Six. Meta Knol, Director of Museum De Lakenhal: "We confirm the agreement to present this painting to the public for the first time as part of the Young Rembrandt exhibition. The exhibition shows works by the young Rembrandt from the period 1624–1634 and is on display in Leiden from 3 November 2019 to 9 February 2020. We aim to highlight the interesting as well as complex art historical story of the attribution to Rembrandt, the restoration history and all substantive aspects of the work in as transparent a way as possible, and to share it with the public. Museum De Lakenhal is currently still closed due to restoration of the 17th-century building and the addition of a new exhibition wing. We are looking forward to welcoming the public into the completely renovated museum, so that all can admire this special painting with their own eyes."
