This is a large and dramatic 23 by 29 inch oil on canvas military painting by Ernest Crofts 1847-1911 signed and dated 1867. He is well listed and known for his military paintings.He did a lot of scenes of Waterloo. I am not sure if this is from there or not. The flag he is holding should be able to decide that.This painting was cleaned and laid down on another canvas quite awhile ago. There is a small area at the bottom that was touched up at that point as per my photo and the upper left swordsman has a couple areas of flaking paint that are not real serious but should be touched up.The painting is nice and flat and has great colors to it.It is quite a striking painting viewed on a wall.His painting have sold as high as $64000.00 at auction.Due to the need for a little work on this we are pricing it quite reasonably.
