When the Museum’s 1632 Portrait of a Young Woman was sent out for routine conservation in 2018, the conservators made an exciting discovery: while this painting had previously been attributed to Rembrandt’s studio, during cleaning they found reason to reconsider an attribution to the master. The Museum will be celebrating the return of this important work to the galleries with the exhibition Rembrandt Revealed, which will illuminate how conservation science has helped us better understand this painting and its authorship.
