The Negress Lying Down

Woman Lying in a Darkened Room is a print of 1658. It portrays the back of a nude woman lying down on her side.

The work is the third and final state of the image that Rembrandt produced and therefore the most fully worked version. Small scale and with a dense and richly worked surface, experts describe the print as a fine example. Significantly the image was never reprinted after the artist's death so the etching is one of a handful known.
