  1. Of course it was 1610 as in title, not 1710 as in text ;)
    There used to be high quality gallery of this painting on hussar.com.pl, sadly no longer there.
    More than two years ago I wrote about it on my blog as well, commenting about how inaccurate is depiction of Swedes there:

  2. You know, that GNW is my favorite, so I put 1700s everywhere ;)

    You wrote in your blog that Swedes looks like the second half of XVII c. As far as I know Boguszowicz made the paint before 1620. He didn't present at Klushino but talked with eyewitnesses. And finally he presented the paint to the Court & Zolkiewski. So, I assume that it's very close to the reality. But Boguszowicz could use Imperial or German troops as a source.

  3. Painting was finished many, many years later and not by Boguszowicz, around 50's or 60's as I recall. That's why You have mix of clothes and armour there.

    1. I didn't know about it. Most of sources usually mention that the author is Boguszowicz himself & he finished the work before 1620.
