Wojciech Kossak "Charge of Polish Uhlans (Polish-Soviet War of 1919/21), oil study, 1920s 2700 EUR
Wojciech Kossak "Charge of Polish Uhlans (Polish-Soviet War of 1919/21), oil study, 1920s
This small oil study (likely - a preparatory work for a large-scale painting that was never completed) was acquired on March 3, 2018 at German auction house "Wendl". The auction house sale catalogue described it as "German school of the 2nd half of the 19th century /Study from the Prusso-French War (1870/71)". It appears clear and obvious that "Wendl" auctioneers lacked the knowledge of military uniforms: in the painting, one sees the (depicted) cavalrymen wearing not the model of 1870 uniform but the one from the late 1910s. Namely, they are wearing the uniform(s) of the Polish Uhlans from the Polish-Soviet War of 1919/1921 (CLICK HERE).
Baron Wojciech (Adalbert) von Kossak (1856 Paris - 1942 Krakow) was a son of the famous Polish horse painter Juliusz Kossak, nephew of another Polish horse painter Leon Kossak and a godchild of a famous French battle painter Horace Vernet (he complemented his own name with the first name of Vernet in his Parisian time). Kossak spent most of his childhood in Paris, and later, between 1863 and 1866, in Warsaw. At the age of fifteen he entered Krakower Art School (its director at the time was Ladislaus Luszczkiewicz). In 1872 he became a student at the Munich Academy, where his teachers were Alexander Wagner and Wilhelm Lindenschmit. In 1877 Kossak served in the Army in the Uhlan Regiment in Krakow, and this experience gave him a crucial impulse for his future activity as a military painter.
