The Conspiracy of the Batavians under Claudius Civilis

by Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijn

The Conspiracy of the Batavians under Claudius Civilis is the name of Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijn's great painting, originally intended for the new Amsterdam Town Hall.

That had already been officially opened in 1655, but the decorations were still uncompleted. Rembrandt was awarded the assignment after the artist originally chosen Govaert Flinck, one of his pupils, had died. Rembrandt and several other artists were commissioned to complete the decoration of the lunettes in the great gallery, the central hall of the building. Rembrandt's painting is dated 1661-62.

The painting is owned by The Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts.
