Possible original discovery of Rembrandt’s “Adoration of the Magi”

An international team of experts in ancient art has declared that a painting from “The Adoration of the Magi”, discovered five years ago in a collector’s home in Italy, could be the original painting by Dutch painter Rembrandt (1606-1669).

The painting accidentally fell off the wall in the collector’s country house, and was handed over to the restoration workshop of Antonella di Francesco, who, after cleaning, is convinced that it was an original by a Dutch master, created between 1632 and 1633, according to the American series CNN. television.

The work has been lost for centuries, with two copies preserved, one in Saint Petersburg in Russia and one in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Since 2016, it has been studied by an international team of experts, who recently presented their findings during a symposium at the French Academy of Villa Medici in Rome, sponsored by the Italian Heritage Foundation, confirming that it appears to be a genuine Rembrandt.

Specialists who have analyzed the work claim that the differences between the figures appearing in two versions of the “Adoration of the Magi” found in Russia and Sweden can only be explained by the presence of a third work that will be the original.

For the team, the original composition is one found in Rome, which contains elements common to the two versions, such as the standing wizard king or the band of heaven at the top of the panel.
