A Rembrandt Masterpiece’s Violent History

A Rembrandt Masterpiece’s Violent History
In this episode of Anatomy of an Artwork, immerse yourself in the history and details of Rembrandt’s monumental painting 'The Night Watch’. Perhaps the most celebrated painting of the Dutch Golden Age, 'The Night Watch’ is also a triumph of painting on a grand scale and a masterful example of tenebrism, the dramatic use of light and shadow. Over the four centuries since its creation, the work has been reduced in size, slashed by a school teacher and even sprayed with acid and yet it still endures as a testament to the majestic genius of Rembrandt.
