Tomasz Makowski & Horses in Hippika

 Salvete Omnes,


long time ago I posted some images by a Polish artist Tomasz Makowski (circa 1575-1650AD).

I would like to return to that edition of Krzysztof Dorohostajski' Hippika, for this blog I corralled horses from that edition of Dorohostajski book.

I wonder if this is a Polish horse,as the city in the background is most likely Krakow, with the Wawel Royal castle on the left

the horses do resemble other horses in the European prints of this period, like those by Antonio Tempesta..
