Victor Mazurowski (1859-1944) was Russian painter of Polish origin. Here you can see fragments of his canvas "Attack of Life Guard Horse Regiment on the French battery during the Battle of Borodino in 1812". Borodino was the bloodiest battle since the times immemorial until WW I. Both side, French and Russians lost one hundred thousand men, NCOs, COs and Generals. Here you can see the fate of a battery left without infantry support. All cannoniers are going to be hacked down to the last man under the strike of the troopers of Life Guard Horse Regiment.

Tsar Cannon, that gun was made by Famous Russian Master Founder Andrei Chokhov in 1586. Carriage and cannon balls were foundered in 1859. In fact that gun was supposed to be giant blunderbuss and shoot with canister. We don't have records about its combat usage but existence of such a gun was the matter of prestige.

Moroccan nimcha sword with a remounted blade etched with a Passau wolf. The blade is very probably an European imported one, but the Passau wolf looks to be a local counterfeit mark.

Neogothic! ... was all the rage in Alsace after its annexation by Prussia to the German Reich in 1871. The movement, the artists behind it, and its political implications in the context of the newly established Reichsland (imperial state) of Alsace-Lorraine is the subject of a small exhibition of remarkable objects, including paintings, drawings, prints, stained glass, and goldsmith’s works at Strasbourg’s Bibliothèque Nationale Universitaire. The highly reflective glass protecting most objects and the placement of spotlights made their photography particularly challenging. Here is an evocative representation of an imaginary medieval chapel complete with its funerary effigy of a recumbent knight in armor by the Strasbourg artist Léo Schnug (1870-1933). Executed in 1903. On loan from a private collection. #bnu #leoschnug #neogothic #armsandarmor #gothicrevival #exhibition #funeraryart #alsace #néogothique

Old friends. Before returning to the US I had a chance to pay a visit to some old friends in Strasbourg’s imposing cathedral. The two soldiers featured here are pure ornament and part of a pulpit in the flamboyant Gothic style carved in the grès des Vosges, the preferred (and local) sedimentary stone whose color can shift from pink through brown to pale grey. The decorative ridges on the soldiers’ arm defenses and gauntlets participate in the overall decorative program. Curiously, the proportions and treatment of their heads evoke putti much more than men-at-arms... The pulpit was carved between 1485 (date in Roman numerals) and 1487 (in Arabic numerals) by Hans Hammer for the famed predicator Johann Geiler of Kaysersberg. The so-called “house mark,” which identifies the sculptor, may be a restoration. #armsandarmor #ornament #flamboyant #flamboyantgothic #lategothic #pulpit #strasbourgcathedral #hanshammer #geilervonkaiserberg

And here's an update on that boy's armor I posted earlier. How do we know it was made for a 3-year-old? Because it fits this young squire here perfectly ... Also note that stunning blue sheen - very much the intended effect of the original surface heat treatment. .
Breastplate for a Young Boy, attributed to the armorer Hans Roth, German (active Augsburg, rec. 1613-1653), German (Augsburg), c. 1620; iron alloy (steel), etched and partially blued (now russet colored) and gilded; leather; Weight: 4 lbs 8.6 oz (2059 g). @philamuseum The Philadelphia Museum of Art, Bequest of Carl Otto Kretzschmar von Kienbusch, 1977 (1977-167-40c).

Come on guys, I found a narrow space between the wall and the panel's frame so we can discreetly sneak in the main scene! 👻
Detail of the life of St Andrew on the Thouzon Altarpiece, possibly painted in Avignon by Jacques Yverni, ca. 1410.

This breastplate belongs to an armor made for Francesco Maria II della Rovere (1548–1631), duke of Urbino from 1574. The armor is represented in a portrait of the prince painted by Federico Barocci soon after Francesco Maria returned to Urbino following his participation in the destruction of the Turkish fleet at the battle of Lepanto in October 1571. It is not known if Francesco Maria wore this armor during the battle or if he had it made afterward to celebrate his role in this historic victory.
The heavy weight of the breastplate suggests that it was intended for battlefield use. The Barocci portrait depicts the prince wearing an infantry armor, which includes an open-faced helmet (burgonet) and a shield. However, the breastplate has a turning-pin at the top for the attachment of a reinforcing breastplate fitted for a lance-rest (now in the Musée de l'Armée, Paris). This indicates that the armor was intended for cavalry use as well and originally would have included a close-helmet and leg defenses.

At first glance this image might almost be mistaken for showing adult-size armor, but take a closer look at the proportions and you will notice that these elements were made for a small child, a boy of about 3 years of age, in fact. The craftsmanship and quality of the decoration is superb, and accordingly, this fragmentary armor ranks among the finest in the Museum’s collection. Surprisingly, it has not yet received the attention it deserves –bearing the mark attributed to one of the last great Augsburg armorers, Hans Roth, it must have been made for a boy of high social rank – and so, since the Museum only had black & white images, the elements were recently photographed and will be included in a forthcoming publication on the highlights of the Museum’s collection of arms and armor.

Maschio Angioino - Castel Nuovo is my favorite castle in Naples. At the gate are two wonderful bas-relieves with Neapolitan and Aragonese men-at-arms around King Alfonso of Aragon who defeated Angevin pretenders and won the crown 👑 of the Kingdom of Naples. Triumphal arch of King Alfonso was built between two towers in the mid of XV century. June 2016.
