Rembrandt artwork found

A long-lost Rembrandt painting has been found in Italy. The artwork, The Adoration of the Magi, depicts a nativity scene in which infant Jesus is visited by the three magi.


The piece was rediscovered in 2016 when a family in Rome sent the painting for restoration after it fell off the wall. They had thought it to be a copy of the original, but restorer Antonella Di Francesco realized it could be the real one. On June 22, it was officially confirmed the painting is a Rembrandt original.


While the family hasn’t been identified, it is reported that they are intending to sell the work, which could go for an estimated US$83.5 million to US$238.5 million. However, the family also told CNN that they were planning to lease the painting to museums and galleries for public viewing.


Although many of Rembrandt’s paintings have been lost, there are pieces such as this that resurface to great interest. Previous rediscoveries include Head of a Bearded Man, a painting that was also thought to be a copy, but was reattributed to the artist in 2020.


Apart from rediscovering the artist’s works, museums have also been working to restore some of the works already on display. Last week, Rembrandt’s famed Night Watch painting was restored by the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam to its original size.
