This small painting painted in 1627 when Rembrandt was just 21 years old, marks a turning point in the style of the young painter, it is one of his first chiaroscuro, a revolution in the history of painting. The painting disappeared for nearly 150 years before reappearing in the 18th century in several auctions. It was found a century later in a private collection in Touraine.
