I would like to use this picture in the history book series I'm editing. Could someone connect me with the artist?

Dear Rufus Jr.

My name is Ric Dolphin and I am the deputy-editor of a charitable publishing company in Edmonton, Alberta, called the Society to Explore and Record Christian History (SEARCH). We are publishing a 12-volume illustrated history of Christianity and would like to use your Winged Horsemen as an illustration for a chapter on the siege of Vienna. Could you provide us with a high-res digital version of the painting and tell us what the fee would be. We generally pay around US$100.

Wonderful piece of art! :) I love the coloring of this one and all the details. You also made really good job with horses, not to mention great capturing of the atmosphere of cavalry charge.

Yay for Polish Hussars!

Very nice work.

Seriously, I think you captured the sheer... "presence" of cavalry as the fighting elite, espescialy the closest rider gives a good impression as to why mot ifantry tended to break and run and faced witha cavalry charge.

Again very nice.

superbe ! a en tomber malade de jalousie ! :D j'ai moi meme dans un coin de ma tête un projet de composition sur les fameux hussards aillés polonais !

En attendant as-tu vu les films "Potop" [link]
et "1612" [link]

On ne comprend guère les dialogues, je préviens mais les images sont sublimes.

Merci pour ces commentaires enthousiastes. Je ne connaissais pas "1612", merci pour le lien. C'est toujours impressionnant de voir "en vrai" une charge de hussards ailés. il y a des extraits intéressants de "With fire and sword" sur Youtube.
