Cheap Painting Turns Out To Be Rembrandt


Three Jewish New Jersey brothers, Ned, Roger and Steven Landau, discovered that a strange painting they inherited from their mother in 2010 was painted by Dutch master Rembrandt van Rijn in the 17th century when an anonymous bidder bought it for $1.1 million dollars instead of not the $500 they were expecting.

Their grandfather apparently picked it up before the Great Depression.

Fortunately, suspecting the painting might be worth something, Ned did not sell it in a garage sale he held after their grandmother’s death.

Roger told Fox News that he did not learn of the good news the day of the auction because it was on Yom Kippur, and he didn’t answer his phone.



  1. Wow. Not bad. They made a few unexpected dollars.
    He keeps Yom Kippur. Very good. The Jewish soul is strong. I hope they become even more closer to Hashem.
