Reveal the Rembrandt: Round 10

Posted on by Minneapolis Institute of Arts

Throughout the years, scholars, critics, and art lovers have debated the authenticity of many Rembrandt paintings. In the spirit of these debates, we’ve taken one detail from a Rembrandt work you’ll see in our exhibit, “Rembrandt in America,” and one detail from a piece in the MIA’s permanent collection. The question is, can you Reveal the Rembrandt?

Can you guess which detail is from a Rembrandt painting?
