Last fall, one of Rembrandt’s earliest known paintings caused a stir when it surfaced at auction. Part of a series depicting the five senses that the Dutch artist made in his hometown of Leiden at the age of 18, The Unconscious Patient (An Allegory of the Sense of Smell) joins two other Rembrandt paintings from the sensory series—Hearing and Touch—for the first time in more than 300 years, thanks to a generous loan from The Leiden Collection. This series, shown alongside other early Rembrandts, offers a rare look at the artist’s genesis. On view at the Getty Center through August 28.
