Photographer's Note

The most famous painting in the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam: "Night Watch" by Rembrandt.
After restoring the picture, it turned out that this is not a night scene but a company of shooters, and under this title this picture should be presented: "The Shooting Company of Frans Banning Cocq and Willem van Ruytenburch".
The painting itself has a rich history, it was repeatedly damaged with a hammer, knife and corrosive acid and then refurbished.
