Rembrandt van Rijn
The Military Company of Captain Frans Banning Cocq is also known as “The Night Watch” because it was thought the painting depicted a nighttime scene. When the painting was cleaned in the 1940s it became obvious that it depicted a daytime scene… He married Saskia van Ulenburgh (also Uylenburgh) in 1634. They had a son, Titus, in 1641, and Saskia died in 1642; both Titus and Saskia appear in many of Rembrandt’s paintings.
