The oil painting hangs on the walls of Buckland Abbey in Devon, the former home of Sir Francis Drake, which is looked after by the Trust.For the last forty years the painting's provenance has been shrouded in mystery but now it is concluded to be by Rembrandt himself. Later this year the painting will go for specialist cleaning and further examination that will shed more light on the painting's origins.
