Ashmolean uncovers painting from Rembrandt’s workshop in museum stores

1 Sep 2020 - 21:45 BY

The Ashmolean has uncovered a painting in its stores, bequeathed to the Museum in 1951, which can now be confirmed as having been painted in Rembrandt’s workshop in c. 1630.  The tiny picture, Head of a Bearded Man, is a portrait study of an old man with a downcast gaze, typical of Rembrandt’s work at this time.  The painting will be put on display from 2 September 2020 in the critically acclaimed Young Rembrandt exhibition.
