The reading asserts that the painting could not be a work by Rembrandt. However, all the point in the reading are questioned by the listening, claiming that the painting were actually painted by Rembrandt.

Firstly, the reading claims that the woman, a servant, in the portrait was dressed a fur collar which she couldn’t afford it. By contrast, the lecturer argues that the fur wasn’t belong to the original painting, because the pigment of the fur was painted over top of the original painting. After the painting finished one hundred year the fur was painted by someone else. Maybe they wanted the painting looking more valuable and the lady looking more rich. In this way, the lecturer contradicts the first idea in the reading.

Second, the reading states that the shadow and light of the painting do not fit together. While according to the lecturer, this is not the case. The lecturer presents that the added fur color was removed. The woman was wearing a light color cloth, the light was illuminating the woman face. Actually the original painting was Rembrandt composition which light was realistic and met the expert of people.

Finally, the reading holds that several pieces of wood glued together was not the way of Rembrandt painted. By casting doubt to the third idea of the reading, the professor in the listening point out when the fur color changed the wood panel also enlarged with added pieces glued to the side, to made the painting grander and valuable. Whereas the painting indeed was worked by Rembrandt. Researchers found that the piece of wood in this painting was same as Rembrandt another painting.
