More About Rembrandt’s The Night Watch
A symbol of the Dutch golden age of art, The Night Watch is famous worldwide for capturing the perception of motion and the stoic presence of the military group.
Rembrandt had originally painted this colossal painting with an exceptionally clever play of colors and lighting.
The chiaroscuro amazingly leads the eye to match every detail with your pupils, dilating every aspect of his vision into the viewer.
Due to the lack of sunlight and shade, the painting fools the viewer into believing it is a night scene, but it is actually the artist’s trickery.
The location of the backdrop is, however, still a mystery!
Every character in the painting is holding onto an unspeakable detail of emotion, including Captain Frans Banninck Cocq, who is the protagonist of this painting.
He holds on to a stellar emotion of triumph, with each militia owning a unique feeling making the painting surreal to look at.
Even the woman with the chicken in the background carries such a stunning expression that makes the viewer question the way she eyes the captain.
The chicken is meant to represent a defeated adversary, questioning her as a spoil of war.
Rembrandt has beautifully managed to make this huge painting a homage to the arquebusiers of the time, making each subject life-sized, which adds a special character to it.
