Rembrandt's largest and most famous work is, of course, the Night Watch, which he commissioned for the Kloveniersdoelen shooters. This was one of the association buildings of the Amsterdam militia, the city's vigilante. Rembrandt was the first to portray the figures in action in a group portrait. Gunmen's mascot The captain, in black, orders his lieutenant to march the company. The shooters line up. What makes the Night Watch so famous is the way in which Rembrandt used light in the painting. Thus he drew attention to important details, such as the shadow of the captain's hand gesture protecting the Amsterdam city coat of arms on the golden-yellow coat of the man next to him'. The little girl in the background also stands out because of the light.
