Amsterdam, North Holland, Netherlands
De Klovernierschutters kwamen hier vanaf 1550 bijeen. Hun schiet-terrein lag langs de Nieuwe Doelenstraat. Ter verfraaiing van de toren lieten deze stadssoldaten zich op het doek vereeuwigen. De 'Nachtwacht' was het resultaat, het heeft hier vanaf 1630 gehangen.
In order to cheer up the walls they asked Rembrandt in 1630 to paint them. The 'Nachtwacht' was the result.
