Hi all,

I'm looking for images. Be they paintings, sketches, woodprint, engravings, carvings, or even etcetera.

I'm looking for images of troops drawn up for battle, and battle lines that have been joined. From any time up to and including Pike and Shot.

If you have the information regarding the date of the artwork and maybe the country, well that'd be just gravy.

Any helpers?

Dave

Try Cranston Fine Arts, they have gobs of paintings ans illustrations from all periods of military history. Spendy , though.

Check out this massive panorama of the Battle of Murten in 1476. It was painted by 1893 by Louis Braun et al. I haven't been able to find a single big picture of the whole thing, but the site lets you pan around and zoom in and out. Lots of detail to examine.

Yes, I believe you're right. Thanks.
