The Night Watch, Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn, 1642.   Rembrandt’s largest, most famous canvas was made for the Arquebusiers guild hall. This was one of several halls of Amsterdam’s civic guard, the city’s militia and police.   Rembrandt was the first to paint figures in a group portrait actually doing something. Rembrandt used the light to focus on particular details, like the captain’s gesturing hand and the young girl in the foreground. She was the company mascot. www.rijksmuseum.nl
