Woman Stepping into a Stream[1] is a painting by Rembrandt, supposedly a portrait of his mistress Hendrickje Stoffels.

The Dutch title of the work is Hendrikje Stoffels, badend in een rivier. The oil on panel, (61.8 x 47 cm) dates from 1654 and is located at the National Gallery, London.

The painting shows the chiaroscuro technique for which Rembrandt became so famous. Also remarkable are the rough areas with which the shirt is painted, in contrast the elaborate detail of the soft face.
