Johan Philip Lemke

If you like battle paintings of obscure wars of the late 17th century then you have come to the right place. These two examples from Johan Philip Lemke are from the Scanian War - the battle of Tirups Head and Malmo - both need careful examining - the Tirups Head picture has some interesting views of the baggage train - a surprisingly popular theme for the corners or edges of an illustrious battle painting.
