Hey, another Wyeth!


This image , when I first saw it as a youngster of some 12 or so summers, absolutely nailed me to the wall.
It is from the volume Legends of Charlemagne, one of the Scribners' classics illustrated by Wyeth.
The vision is so powerful and has such clarity; how did he see these things in his head? (And no Spielberg movies for inspiration..)Tried to copy it, seeing how the horses are so well drawn, but it is there but not there: trying to do that without knowledge of anatomy was impossible.

No way. Although copying it would reproduce the drawing, I guess the results should have been "flat" without the knowledge of anatomy.
