AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, Sep 22, 2005 (United Press International via COMTEX) -- Amsterdam's Rembrandt Museum has uncovered four forgotten works by the Dutch master.

The oil paintings were discovered while the museum was preparing for a new exhibit scheduled to show in both the Netherlands and Germany next year, Expatica reported Thursday.

The head of the Rembrandt Research Project, Professor Ernst van de Wetering, was investigating a number of paintings believed to have been done by Rembrandt's students, when he found four of the works were actually painted by the master himself, Expatica said.

The newly discovered masterpieces will on display at the Rembrandt Museum through Dec. 22.
