  1. Bit odd painting, as none of the soldiers above looks like Polish ;)

  2. Reschi was born in Danzig -) But as far as I understood from web-sources, Reschi in 1680s worked in Munich. So, evidently Bavarians present on all pictures -)

  3. Battle of Vienna without Poles - 'new history' present even in paintings from period I guess.

  4. Nevertheless interesting iconography - I wish someone would show the painting by Altomonte in Vienna, similar to the one in Ukraine.

  5. What's Altomonte's full name? I don't find any reference to his work
