Rembrandt van Rijn is one of the most prominent storytellers in the history of art.
Rembrandt's ability to capture people in their various states of emotions and dramatic moments in his artworks touches many audiences to this day. His 300 paintings can be found in collections around the world, ranging from Amsterdam to Japan.
The Night Watch is Rembrandt's largest and most significant painting.
It is often proclaimed as one of the most famous Dutch Golden Age paintings. The Night Watch is a group portrait of a militia company led by Captain Frans Banning Cocq and his lieutenant Willem van Ruytenburgh. These men are responsible for defending the city and putting down riots.

Rembrandt was the first to capture the moment. Now, it's available in the Metaverse.

Continue the legacy
Dr. Ernst van de Wetering (1938-2021) was a Dutch historian who had extensive expertise and specialized in Rembrandt and his work. In 1992, he was the chairman of the Rembrandt Research Project, where he led a team of scholars to track down, authenticate, and preserve Rembrandt's works.
