For ten years Ied van der Mersch had an etching she inherited from her father hanging under the stairs, only to recently find out that it was made by none other than Dutch master Rembrandt van Rijn. "Really stupid," she said on television program Jinek. "My father was always reasonably convinced that it was a Rembrandt. For some reason, I didn't have that feeling."
