The Night Watch - Rembrandt



The Night Watch is the best known painting and masterpiece by Rembrandt van Rijn and can be seen in the Gallery of Honor of the Rijksmuseum. Rembrandt painted it between 1639 and 1642. The official name is: The company of Captain Frans Banning Cocq and Lieutenant Willem van Ruytenburgh is getting ready to march out. This work, a militia piece, was ordered as a group portrait by a company from the guild guild. It was probably first called 'The Night Watch' around 1796/1797. According to Ernst van de Wetering, the work failed in a certain sense.

The value of the painting cannot be expressed in money. It is not for sale or has ever been for sale. The militia company that commissioned Rembrandt at the time was an urban institution and The Night Watch has since been owned by the municipality of Amsterdam, on perpetual loan to the Rijksmuseum.
