"Wait! Let' em come nearer!"

I adore this painting, "Wait! Let' em come nearer!", by Vereshchagin, 1895.

Also by Vereshchagin:

The Night Bivouac of the Great Army--and this is why Napoleon's army all died.

In Defeated Moscow ("Arsonists" or "Shooting in the Kremlin")

There is a horror in Vereshchagin's paintings.

In the Hospital, 1901.

The beginning of modern warfare...

The Doors of Tamerlane, 1873

and yet preserved a world left behind:

Mounted Warrior in Jaipur. c.1881

Jerusalem. Kings' Tombs, 1885.

Solomon's Wall, 1885.
