Jean-Léon Gérôme and horses

Salvete Omnes,
Napoleon Bonaparte and Sphinx 

just a quick entry - one of my most favorite artists of the Academic movement from France - Jean-Leon Gerome.
I used to have a very large album of his works, but it got lost somewhere during the years, so with help from  Wiki Commons we can get a glimpse into his equestrian art.

I would like to bring to your attention his equestrian sculptures -
maestro Gerome did a very powerful sculpture of Timur aka Tamerlane, but I cannot find any image on the Net. 
Henri d'Orleans
