NEW YORK (AP) - A New York City museum says Rembrandt’s earliest masterpiece will be exhibited in the U.S. for the first time.

“Judas Returning the Thirty Pieces of Silver” will be shown starting June 3 at The Morgan Library & Museum.

It’s one of a few Rembrandts for which several preparatory drawings survive. The exhibition reunites the painting and those drawings for the first time since their creation.

The work has long been held in a British private collection.

The artist was 23 years old when he painted it. The exhibition will include some self-portraits from that era.
