Rembrandt’s First Masterpiece at the Morgan Library and Museum

Completed when he was just twenty-three years old, Rembrandt’s Judas Returning the Thirty Pieces of Silver has long been recognized as the artist’s first mature work—his first masterpiece. The painting demonstrates the characteristics that would make Rembrandt famous: his unique use of chiaroscuro, a rhythmic harmony of composition, and his ability to convey the exceptional emotional drama of a scene. Held by a British private collection, this magnificent work will be shown in the United States for the very first time at the Morgan.
