    Note added by pwadm: The last image was actually painted by Piotr Walerski from a black-and-white copy as the original didn't survive. The colors were added by Piotr Walerski and may not correspond to the original.

    Jan Matejko. I discovered this artist while researching my latest flat project.

    So . . I remember many happy hours spent Sitting in the Bay window seat of a Caravan on wet windy summer holidays in the '60s
    Delighting in the artwork of the Airfix catalogue and the work of
    Richard Cross
    harrow2.jpg
    This man's artwork must have fostered the imagination of literally millions and a few generations of modellers
    I include him as after 40 years I bought this model in january and I only do figures

    ernest_crofts_ra_the_cavalry_charge_d5342153g.jpg The%20Outpost%20Ernest%20Crofts%20RA.jpg

    I would also like to nominate The Walker Art gallery, William Brown St. Liverpool.
    Displaying Holbein's Henry VIII, Richard Caton-Woodville, Lady Butler, JL David and Ernest Crofts.
    Although all available to see on line. I am going to do a bit of shopping later, and I shall call in to look again at 'Napoleon on the eve of Waterloo' and 'Saving the guns at Mywand' how luckyam I to be so close.
