2021
Oil on canvas
3'4" x 14'
Commissioned by Captain Banning Cocq and 17 members of his Kloveniers (civic militia guards), Rembrandt's The Night Watch (1642) is famous for its colossal size (12 x 14 ft), the dramatic use of light and shadow, and the perception of motion.
This piece selects 18 square feet across the painting in 6 groups of 3.
