Rembrandt Painting in Capitoline Museums Until September 15, 2011

The Capitoline Museums in Rome will display Rembrandt‘s A Woman At Her Toilet, which he painted in 1633, one year before his wedding to Saskia van Uylenburgh, who is thought to have posed for the portrait.

The exhibition will last until September 15 2011 and is possible thanks to an exchange with Ottawa’s National Gallery of Canada, who will have Caravaggio‘s The Fortune Teller on loan in the meantime.

The subject matter of the painting is an Old Testament heroine, thought to be either Esther or Judith.
