Translated from Dutch news agency ANP:
HAARLEM – The Frans Hals Museum in Haarlem has discovered a new painting by the Haarlem painter Judith Leyster (1609-1660). Leyster is the most famous female painter from the Dutch Golden Age. The Frans Hals Museum hopes to be able to exhibit the painting soon, but the work is very damaged.
According to an employee of the museum this is a very recent discovery. She did not want to give details yet. The museum will soon release more information about the newly discovered work by the painter.
This Saturday, in the museum a small exhibition of her work will start, in collaboration with the National Gallery of Art in Washington [in the USA], to mark the four hundredth birthday of Judith Leyster.
