Missing Rembrandt on display at TEFAF Maastricht

<p>A long lost painting by Dutch artist Rembrandt appears to have been found. This is one of five paintings depicting the five senses.</p> <p>It’s called The Fainted Patient (Smell) and shows someone helping a patient regain consciousness by helping him sniff a cloth of ammonia. </p> <p>The painting was discovered in the US state of New Jersey when a private collector brought it to an auction. </p> <p>Rembrandt painted “the smell” when he was 18 or 19 years old. Rembrandt signed this painting with <span class="caps">RHF</span>, which was his earliest signature, and the initials stand for Rembrandt Harmenz Fecit. </p> <p>“The Smell” will be displayed at the annual art and antique auction <a href="https://www.facebook.com/TEFAFMaastricht"><span class="caps">TEFAF</span> in Maastricht</a> between March 11-18. </p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Rembrandt's 'Smell'.
