Rijksmuseum’s heroes are back!
Last update: 21/05/2013 09:35

Rembrandt’s masterpiece the “Night Watch” returned to the Rijksmuseum, the home of the world’s largest collection of Rembrandt paintings, after a decade-long renovation process.

To mark the reopening the museum surprised visitors at a shopping centre in Breda with a flashmob recreating Rembrandt’s painting, titled “Onze helden zijn terug“, “Our heroes are back!”

The painting, completed in 1642, at the peak of the Dutch Golden Age, depicts the eponymous company moving out, led by Captain Frans Banning Cocq (dressed in black, with a red sash) and his lieutenant, Willem van Ruytenburch.
