History Painting is an early painting by Rembrandt dating to 1626. The title is a generic reference to history painting, as there is no consensus about the painting's subject matter. More than a dozen subjects have been proposed, ranging from Biblical themes to classical and modern history.[1]

Owned by the Instituut Collectie Nederland, it is on permanent loan to the Stedelijk Museum De Lakenhal in Leiden.[2]
