Woman Bathing or A Woman Bathing in a Stream is a c.1654 painting by Rembrandt, now in the National Gallery, London, which acquired it in 1831. It was probably modelled on Hendrickje Stoffels. Hendrickje is thought to be Rembrandt's mistress, representing an erotic woman in a vulnerable state, stepping into her bath.[1]
