French painter François Flameng

Spring time and the world rejoices, for the grass is so green :)

I came across this great French painter so immediately wanted to share with you all:
François Flameng - gallery at Wikipedia Commons

Gallica is a sure bet to see some more works and documents related to this fine painter has some books with his works

A nice blog entry on the artist (in French)

In this year of the hundredth anniversary of the Great War this immage is a very appropriate one, celebrating the victory of the French


I do not own these images and share them with you under fair share and/or copyleft etc
A compilation of texts on war horses and related material derived from   the early XVII century cavalry manuals  - on this blog that is sadly not continued at the present. Recent web article in Polish written by a reitar cavalry reenactor (with author's drawings) but very similar, in my opinion, or even  a translation of the mentioned 2006 blog entry (although note that not the whole text displays in my Firefox browser). But then the sources are all the same and the translation is something new for the Polish enthusiasts of the XVI-XVII cavalry manuals.
