Giovanni Fattori - miltiary horse

Salvete Omnes,
A couple days ago I came across this Italian painter - maestro Giovanni Fattori - and his interesting military paintings from unified Italy that show plenty of military horse and equestrian equipment.
you can obviously view the gallery at Wiki Commons, so I would like to just point you towards his equestrian and historic art. The war depicted in his paintings was the most heroic in the modern Italian history  - the unification of the Italian states by northern Italian kingdom of Piedmont, also known in its totality as Risorgimiento, into one Italy as Kingdom of Italy.
a couple of the paintings and some detail:
