Omschrijving

Night Watch or The Night Watch or The Shooting Company of Frans Banning Cocq (De Nachtwacht in Dutch) is the common name of one of the most famous works by Dutch painter Rembrandt van Rijn.

This painting was completed in 1642, at the peak of the Dutch Golden Age. It depicts the eponymous company moving out, led by Captain Frans Banning Cocq (dressed in black, with a red sash) and his lieutenant, Willem van Ruytenburch (dressed in yellow, with a white sash). With effective use of sunlight and shade, Rembrandt leads the eye to the three most important characters among the crowd, the two gentlemen in the centre (from whom the painting gets its original title), and the small girl in the centre left background. Behind them the company's colours are carried by the ensign, Jan Visscher Cornelissen.

The militiamen were also called Arquebusiers, after the arquebus, a sixteenth-century long-barrelled gun.

Rembrandt has displayed the traditional emblem of the Arquebusiers in the painting
