      Last time I was at the Museum (a couple of months ago), the painting was not on display; they had rearrainged the armour court.
      I took a number of pics at close range before that, but when I searched my digital pics just now, they were'nt there. I must have used the film camera (how retro of me). I'll try to find the prints, but can't give you an estimate of that (house cleaning).

      Gentlemen & Ladies, 
      I went to the CMA site, but the image is not detailed enough to show the bolts.  I guess I'll have to trek back to the museum for better detail.

      If you just search for the painting name you will find a PDF from the museum showing the painting.

      For what it's worth,
      At the Cleveland Museum of Art, in a German paiting from the 1540s, the hunting scene has a hunt with numerous crossbow shooters - close inspection shows the bolts marked with colored banding. The painting is "Hunting Near Hartenfels Castle" by Lucas Cranach the Elder (1472-1553)
      Date: 1540
