|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.
