Artemisa, Óleo sobre lienzo, 143 x 154,7 x 2,5 cm. 1634, Madrid, Museo Nacional del Prado. Detalle de la firma.

The weak lines of the signature and in particular its yellow colour have led to suggestions that it is not authentic. On the other hand, the spelling Rembrant appears on a number of paintings of 1633 and on various prints executed between 1632 and 1633, as well as in documents signed by the artist. In addition, the date corresponds to the style of the painting within the context of Rembrandt’s work at this period.
