    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.

    Walerij Grygorenko

    Anyone who, in addition to figures, is also involved in plastic model building and knows the kits from the Ukrainian company "Roden" has certainly held a pack in their hands that bears his box art:

    Born in 1963, Ukrainian artist Walerij Grygorenko did almost all of the boxart for "Roden" - and his style was distinctive and outstanding. He also worked as a freelance illustrator.

    Dan Nance

    I came across this painting in Richie's post "An idea for you WW1 modelling buffs".

    The Last Farewell.jpeg and was intrigued by who the painter was.

    I fed the name 'Nance' into Google, and eventually came across Dan Nance, who was absent from the listing.
    The painting is called "The Last Farewell".

    Here are some more of his works:-

    Prayer for the Buffalo.jpg "Prayer for the Buffalo"

    Confederate Picket.jpg "Confederate Picket"

    All the Way.jpg "All the Way"

    You can find "The last Farewell" HERE. Just click on 'DAN NANCE' in the top left corner to take you to many of his paintings.
    You can also find another site HERE for more views of his paintings.

    Cheers,

    It has been a while since I contributed any images. Here are three from Spanish artist Cesar Alvarez Dumont. First up is 'An Incident of the War of Independence.

    Incident from the War of Independence by Dumont .jpg

    Next we have the "Defense of the Pulpit of Santa Engrazia, Seragossa.

    The Pulpit of St. Augustin by Dumont .jpg

    Last we have the "Death of Commodore Charucca aboard the San Juan Nepomucino, Trafalgar.

    Death of Commodore Churruca  aboard San Juan Nepomuceno  (3).jpg


    I am needing information on the following artists - Alexander Koroschuk, Alexander Luntakov, Ilya Ulyanov, and Nikolai Zubkov. Any biographical information would be welcomed. Ta!

    I could see someone like Jose Hidalgo doing that pulpit scene as a vignette.
