A unique Rembrandt etching has been rediscovered in the Print Room of the Scottish National Gallery. The print, a portrait of the Amsterdam preacher Jan Cornelis Sylvius of 1633, was previously catalogued as a copy of a work by Rembrandt. Recent research has established that the etching is the work of the Dutch master himself and is the only known impression of this image to have been printed in red ink.
Rembrandt’s Portrait of Jan Cornelis Silvius is shown at the National Gallery alongside an impression of the same image in black ink and one of the artist’s rare original copper etching plates, Beggar Woman Leaning on a Stick of 1646.
