Rembrandt’s Old Rabbi

Imagine this: you have a private library that is famous world wide for its art collection (with scores of works by such names as Van Dyke and Canaletto), and it takes you more than 50 years to discover that one of the paintings hanging on your wall is an authentic Rembrandt!

This is exactly what happened with the private library of Woburn Abbey, which has announced that the work, titled ‘The Old Rabbi’ has been authenticated as a Rembrandt. The 1643 painting will be displayed this week at the library.
