What a fantastic set of pictures :),not all to my taste I admit but all pretty stunning non the less.
What about Wojciech Kossak
Actualy the artist I came on this thread to mention :). I found a large book of his art in a second hand shop in my town in the UK,a Polish book (many turn up as we have a large '45 generation pop') that thankfully at the time I bought it also had a section in English(it still has that section,i mean I didnt speak any Polish at the time....) and found his story and his work most interesting, he actually served as a Uhlan in the Austro - Hungarian army and has such an eye for horses.
A few years ago I was lucky enough to see one of his very large battle scenes close up,and one not on public view while visiting a friend at the Armed forces Museum in Warsaw and have been hooked ever since. I also think his adverts for a certain still available brand of piwo are charming.
