The old post was getting a little crowded so, time for something new. Above, the attack of the Union Brigade at Waterloo. Who is the artist? MN initials in lower right. Below left Cossack horse artillery by an artist that reminds me of the Funckens. On right is the forlorn hope. I have five prints of Prussian units by the same artist, I just don't know who he is and can't make out the signature. Any help appreciated.

Well, best get up some new images. First up Gen. Dumas at the Pont de Clausen. I am not familiar with this action. Second, the Emperor in a hospital scene. Can't be Lannes (he has both of his legs). Maybe Duroc, but that was a bloody mess. Anyone know where this came from? Third a wonderful British NCO. Last but not least, remember our pic of Grouchy being captured by a Russian grenadier? Here is a pic by the same artist. A drgoon trying for a banner of the Tobolsk Regt. The faces of the contestants are so familiar but I cannot place the artist. Once again, any help appreciated.
Since we are on a new page I thought I would give a heads up on progress. You have helped immensely in identifying some artists and images (and egged me into finding others). Some relatively well known, some pretty obscure. Here we go.
Carl Rochling, Richard Scollins, Richard Hook, Jack Cassin Scott, Louis Fregier, Sergei Letin, Palacios-Fernandez, I Alyokhin, Alexander Leonov, Zvinomir Grbasic, O Vasiliev, and Oleg Parkhaev, some good info on some cards by JOB and good biographical info that I had really been looking for on on Nikolai Yezhov.
Still have a long way to go.
The cuirassier unit pictured is probably Travers brigade who had followed d'Erlon's corps and were driven downhill by the Somerset's cavalry brigade when the Union brigade charged and routed d'Erlon.
Ironically, it was Guiton's cuirassier brigade that struck and finished off the Union brigade in conjunction with Jacquinot's lancers. The lancers hit them in the flank; the cuirassiers in the front.
