It went into storage a painting. It'll come out a Rembrandt.
Joslyn Art Museum is preparing to unveil a painting by the 17th century Dutch master — one of history's most famous and revered artists — that has been in the museum's possession for 72 years but was out of view for the past decade. The reason for its exile: The museum believed it had a work from the “School of Rembrandt,” meaning it might have come from the artist's studio, perhaps painted by one of his many students, but not from the hand of Rembrandt van Rijn himself.
