A Company of Amsterdam Militiamen

The arms of Amsterdam can be seen on the standard borne by the man on the left.

This picture was painted in the 19th century, probably after 1850. An imitation of Dutch mid-17th-century painting, it was possibly inspired by 'The Celebration of the Peace of Münster' by Govert Flinck, which was painted in 1648 (Amsterdam, Rijksmuseum).
