New Frans Hals paintings discovered


Frans Hals

The Frans Hals Museum in Haarlem claims to have found five new paintings by the master. Research shows that one of the paintings, a portrait from 1640, was previously considered as not being one of Hals’ works, while the other four were unknown until now. The portrait was discovered recently at the Dutch embassy in Paris.

All the paintings are currently being restored and will be on display at the museum as of 11 October.
