The Night Watch by Rembrandt van Rijn, 1640 - 1642. Rembrandt painted The Militia Company of Captain Frans Banning Cocq between 1640 and 1642. This picture was called the Nachtwacht by the Dutch and the Night Watch by Sir Joshua Reynolds.
In the years of the Dutch Golden Age, painters used still lifes to showcase their command of texture and attention to detail. And they obsessed over color almost as much as we do. It turns out their plays on light, earthy depth, and crackled textures were the perfect match for our handcrafted tile.
