    Well, while the tree is shakin,' I'll throw another artist out there. But this one also has a twist. Oleg Parkhaev is a Russian artist who has several published works (unfortunately in Russian) of uniform plates. Where the battle scenes come from I have no clue. Date of birth unknown. Place of birth unknown. Russia, Cossack Hetman by Parkhaev  (2).jpg Polish infantry encounter Russian grenadiers by Oleg Parkhaev  (2).jpg Russians advance by Oleg Parkhaev  (2).jpg

    I am looking for any and I mean any biographical information on this artist.

    Thank you, Martin of Bremen. I am surprised that Parkhaev is a contemporary artist. One would not know it from looking at his work. Beautiful. Once again thank you brother!

    That was relatively easy, so let's try again. Here are three images by another Russian artist - Sergai Letin. He died in 2005. Other than that I know nothing other than he illustrated a work by a historian who went on to murder his girlfriend. Who said history was boring? Any biographical infomation would be helpful on this wonderful artist who is not on the list yet.
