  • French Cavalry Prints
    cavalry issued for the French army at the time of the American Revolution Much has been made of eighteenth century naval warfare in which opposing fleets rigidly followed prescribed maneuvers The result was maximum parade and minimum battle and the admiral who broke from tradition would be vigorously punished A similar pattern existed for the army Fashion grace of movement and set patterns were the order of the day for cavalry These prints illustrate how large bodies of cavalry could be controlled by one order being given and the entire contingent moving uniformly At a time when armies were getting much larger and fire power was increasing this was a way for commanders to control troop movements once the fighting began These are lovely prints featuring graceful horses and riders but with a serious purpose in history Note that the prints are wrapped with mylar so there are some reflections in the images below that are just from the photography Note also that we have other prints from this series so if you would like to see other images similar to any particular print shown below please contact us Plate III 425 Plate IV 425 Plate VI 425 Plate VIII
