  • This painting was intented to be displayed in the Royal Palace of Amsterdam, however Rembrandt and the commissioner of the painting could not come to an agreement on the final execution of the work. After the return of the painting to Rembrandt's studio the painter cut off the majority of the painting, leaving it to only 25% of its original size. A sketched study for the original work shows us what 'The Conspiracy of the Batavians under Claudius Civilis' was intented to look like.
