Admire 30 huge group portraits from the 17th century, all part of the collections of the Amsterdam Museum and Rijksmuseum. The ‘brothers and sisters’ of The Night Watch are unique and rarely exhibited due to their size. Admire them in the Hermitage Amsterdam.
The paintings show regents, civic guards and merchants from all strata of society. They are linked by their success, some of them being the most influential and wealthy residents of 17th-century Holland. They all had enough money to commission the best artists to paint their militia company.
In early 2014, the directors of the Amsterdam Museum, Hermitage Amsterdam and Rijksmuseum ratified their partnership for a permanent exhibition of over 30 enormous 17th-century group portraits. This was the first time a collection of group portraits of this size would be exhibited together.
