Kossak - 1877 Lwow (Lemberg) Expo horses

Salvete Omnes,
a short entry -
I would like to bring to your attention two published prints from Tygodnik Ilustrowany (1878 - The Illustrated Weekly) that were intended to depict notable horse presented at the Lwow (then Lemberg, Austrian Partition or the invented by the Austrians  Galicia & Lodomeria) Provincial Expo in 1877AD.
The drawings for these two plates were done from life by one of my favorite Polish artists of all times - Juliusz Kossak.

The plates were published the following year and did no have any more text or description but the small print at the bottom of each plate.
