The Night Watch , 1642 Some specialized terms in Dutch: kloven : musket klovenier : musketeer kloveniersdoelen : headquarters and shooting range of the Amsterdam civic guard company of musketeers (from doel : target) “In the opinion of many, he made the large picture more a work executed according to his own wishes than one of individual portraits, as he was commissioned to do. However, this work, no matter how much it can be criticized, will survive all its competitors because it is so painterly in conception, so swaggering in movement, and so powerful that . . . all other works there stand beside it like playing cards.”—Samuel van Hoogstraten (1678)
