Notes

  • Rembrandt identifies his painting as having members of "the Night Guard". Frans Banning Cocq's shooting company was a militia at most, not the city's organized nightly law enforcement. The term "Night Watch" arose after varnish gave the painting a darker appearance and was not used before 1797. The varnish was removed in 1940.
  • Aside from being presented as smaller than it actually is (it would not fit in the room it's in), the Night Watch is also the wrong ratio. As part of a move in 1715, the edges were trimmed. If Superman traveled back in time and memorized the original, it would immediately raise suspicion as it was about half a meter wider than the painting in the museum in 1968.
