Because the proponents of the approaches all premise or assume that unity was a desideratum, either they ignore the disruptive features of the painting or else they allegorize them away. They acknowledge the problems Rembrandt's compositional choices place in the way of the demands and conventions of the portrait function. The militia guilds were called not only Schutters but also Kloveniers, because in 1522 the original fourteenth-century weapon, the crossbow, was replaced by a primitive firearm called a klover. The most important function of the company may be to dine together.
