Charles Parrocel (1688-1752)

Head of a soldier and Camp du régiment du Roi - "des hussards qui passent à cheval par un camp et dans le fond de la cavalerie en marche" (scène de la vie militaire sous Louis XV)
Maybe these pictures are a little late for this blog being from the age of Louis XV but what the heck? These images from the War of Austrian Succession have the look of earlier artists of Louis XIV's reign and artists like Van der Meulen.

Nice find, Ralphus. I'm going to look for more of his work.
