Dutch Civic Guard Paintings reunited in Royal Palace Amsterdam

After exactly two centuries the Civic Guard Paintings are reunited in the Chambers of the Council of War in a historical reconstruction. From the 21 of June till the 31 of August it is possible to bring a unique visit to the third floor of the Royal Palace Amsterdam. For once, the Small and Great Chambers of the Council of War will be open for public. These rooms could never be seen before.

In the eighteenth century the Royal Palace was still the Town Hall of Amsterdam. The Amsterdam Civic Guard was housed in the Chambers of the Council of War. These rooms were decorated with eighteen large ‘Civic Guard Paintings’. Impressive paintings, of which Rembrandt's Night Watch is the most famous and best known. In the Small Chamber of the Council of War Rembrandt's Night Watch was reduced to its actual size. Otherwise it could not fit between two doors.
