Christ in the Storm on the Sea of Galilee,1633
This historical painting and is one of Rembrandt's largest works.
As well as being his earliest painting, at the age of 29, it is also his only seascape.
Stolen in 1990 - part of the biggest art heist in US history, the museum that held the piece retains the empty frame in its original location.
The painting shows the event described in the Gospel of Luke whereby a sudden storm scared the disciples in charge of the vessel, who subsequently woke the sleeping Jesus.
Rembrandt used a style of painting known as Tenebrism (violent contrasts of light and dark) to depict Christ’s miracle of calming of the sea
It was painted during the time that Rembrandt had relocated from Amsterdam to Leiden in the province of South Holland, Netherlands
