Oil on canvas
An action-packed study of a warrior with a winged helmet by Belgian artist, Alexis Nys (1844-1926). He appears to be on horseback with the reigns in his left hand and a weapon in his right.
Nys probably completed this study during his time at the Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels where he trained between 1859 and 1873. He was an accomplished artist and exhibited widely including at the Prix de Rome and the Salon Triennal des Beaux-Arts.
