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?
