Experts at the Rijksmuseum in The Netherlands have attributed six paintings to the Dutch master Hercules Segers. Segers, who was admired by Rembrandt, often painted mountainous landscapes using unconventional techniques. Prior to the recent authentication, art historians agreed that Segers created between ten and twelve paintings during his lifetime. A major exhibition dedicated to Segers and his work will open on October 7 at the Rijksmuseum.
