tiny Rembrandt portrait sells for millions

Rembrandt Fever Over Auctioned Portrait which may or may not be painted by Rembrandt himself, perhaps by a follower or student.

But the miniature sold for $4.5 million after 15 minutes' bidding and is clearly a portrait of the artist (as Democrates the Laughing Philosopher) if not by the artist.

At 9.5" x 6.5" that's a lot of speculation in one small package!
