2013 flashmob by Rijksmuseum, always worth to watch!

Share

A flashmob recreated one of Rembrandt’s paintings in a shopping centre in Breda, to mark the painting’s return to the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. The museum was going to reopen on 13 April 2013 following a 10-year renovation.

Passers-by were both shocked and amused to see performers taking part in a large-scale live reconstruction of Rembrandt’s famous painting “The Night Watch”. The painting, completed in 1642, depicts Captain Frans Banning Cocq and his lieutenant, Willem van Ruytenburch, leading out their city guard, Schutterij.
