Today's little find. As well as an unexpected treasure-trove of books at a local antiques fair today, this postcard was a pleasant find. We're no strangers here at Front Free Endpaper to the melding of naked man to naked horse and the painting reproduced here is by a Danish artist called Oscar Matthiesen and is called the Scanian Dragoons Head for a Swim (c.1905). There's more information about it and a picture of it in situ showing just how big it is in real-life on Flickr. Amusingly the bodies were modelled by enlisted men and then the heads on their fit shoulders were portraits of the officers.
