About the Marksmanship

For this supper of the Cluveniers' militia, Cluveniers meaning musketeers, Frans Hals chose the moment when the ensigns entered. The symmetry of the composition, in which diagonals and triangles can be recognised, is striking. The fact that the depiction still comes across as a unity is thanks to the interaction between the archers.

At the head of the table on the left is the colonel, wearing his orange sash. Normally, the sashes are in the colours of the militia's banner, but in this case the colours of the Dutch flag are used. The three sitting men in the middle are the captains. The greyhound (bottom left) is one of the few animals that Hals ever painted.

Lifelike paintings

In his own time, Frans Hals was already famous for the way in which he could portray people true to life. The liveliness is also striking in his group portraits. A smile, a hand gesture, eye contact and a blush on the cheek: people of flesh and blood.

Master of the loose touch

Frans Hals is also known as 'the master of the loose brushstroke'. He distinguished himself from his contemporaries by a remarkably loose brushstroke. From close up, the individual brushstrokes can always be clearly distinguished. Seen from some distance, the overall picture emerges

This masterpiece by Frans Hals is part of our collection of Haerlemsche Meesters and is on display in the Frans Hals Museum location Hof in Haarlem.
