All the Civic Guard paintings

In one extraordinary room at Frans Hals Museum, you can see six civic guard pieces b Haarlem’s renowned painter, Frans Hals. Thanks to a special loan from the Amsterdam Rijksmuseum, all six pieces can be seen at once providing a unique opportunity to see and compare all the paintings. These 17th-century group portraits feature armed civilians who were tasked with maintaining order and, if necessary, defending the city against attackers.
