More About this Item


Description: Theodor Fontane elaborated on the work of Emil Hünten, one of the most important German painters of battle scenes, at the Berlin Academy Exhibition of 1862, stating that: "The scenery is painterly: a creek dividing a grain field, right and left quietly rising and dotted with red poppies everywhere, here and there becoming the stage for an unequal fight. To the left, Russian grenadiers, partly hidden by trees, to the right, tribes of Asian prairie riders in colourful costumes, bearing bows and arrows and well-filled quivers on their backs. The picture as a genre object displays much study and accuracy through which it elevates itself into a higher category of skill."
