"Stolen Rembrandt discovered"

Image of "Stolen Rembrandt discovered"

Picture: Liberation

At least, that's the headling, but the photo of the 'Rembrandt' discovered by police in Nice (via Liberation, above) doesn't look entirely convincing for a Rembrandt. In fact, at all convincing. The painting was stolen from a French museum in Draguignan in 1999. Details here at AFP, and more when I get it.

Update - Didier Rykner of Tribune de l'Art has been investigating, and also says, having spoken to someone at the Louvre, that it is absolument not a Rembrandt.
