Russian whitecoat by Nikolay Zubkov

No it isn't a Frenchman - it's a Russian of the Great Northern War - just to show you they didn't all wear green. I am quite a fan of Russian historical illustration, it generally is of high quality.

This particular pic is from Russian magazine called "Zeughaus" the artist is Nikolay Zubkov and the corporal depicted is from Smolensky IR from 1713. Apparently Nik does mainly sci-fi artwork these days but you can catch up with him on his live journal here.

I agree those illustrations are lovely, where are they from?
