Canvas Print Description

“Night Watch”, painted in 1642 by Rembrandt van Rijn, is a masterwork of world art and an evocative vision of community cohesion, national unity, and humility. National icons responsible for shaping the fate and identity of a people are usually bombastic, jingoistic offerings of military might. Rembrandt’s loose band of rag-tag volunteers, however, reflects the fate of a different kind of people. In their midst stands a strange, luminous figure; a little girl. Despite her innocuous presence in the vigilant gang, she does not command anyone’s attention. Rather, she seems to be the central point around which the divergent figures orbit, each of the them ready and willing to propel themselves forth in whichever dimly lit direction presents a potential threat. The group is vulnerable yet venerable, a unified force but also a gang of individuals, and together they ward off the approach of the belligerent forces of war and of the night. Their everyday heroism would have been a familiar sight in the towns and city of Holland in Rembrandt’s day. Commissioned from the artist by the civic militia depicted therein, each member paid a contribution to acquire the skills of the most prestigious of painters. Ravaged by the thirty-years war, Europe had become an apocalyptic battleground of religious rivalry tinged with the constant threat of invasion. During a period of tremendous brutality, and of hired hands committing countless atrocities, Rembrandt’s band of local watchmen are citizens leading by example. It is one of the most accomplished group portraits ever painted, brimming with idiosyncrasies and individualism, but most of all it shows the genesis of a proud and humble community that would soon call themselves a nation.
