A Painting Languishing In A New Jersey Basement That Turned Out To Be One Of Dutch Master Rembrandt's Earliest Works.

It goes on display at the j. Paul Getty museum in California as a key part of an exhibit on the 17th century artist.

The main work is among a series of five paintings on the senses that Rembrandt created as a teenager, and will be displayed with two others hearing and touch this month , when the exhibit will travel internationally.

The painting's slog from a New Jersey basement to the upper echelons of the art world began in July when adult children cleaning out their family home in Essex County after their parents died contacted Nye and Co Auction House in Bloomfield, New Jersey.
