Hi-Res Uniform Prints Part 3

These images again come from the Anne S.K. Brown Military Collection.  These consists of watercolor works (aquarelles) from the brush of Pierre Albert Leroux.  His works on this site cover French soldiers from the Napoleonic era up until WWII.  The pictures of the mounted figures are from a series of 32 watercolors completed by Leroux in 1913.  Most of the other paintings of dismounted soldiers were completed just before WWII in 1939.  Leroux was born 10 November 1890, in Versailles and died 1959.  He was a pupil of Fernand Cormon and Pierre Laurens at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris and he exhibited his work in Paris at the Salon des Artistes Français.  (Note: Leroux was the artist that painted the three Foreign Legion figures in my previous posts.)

Here are the lower resolution images of the mounted figures.

Here are the lower resolution images for the figures on foot.

These Mefiafire links will download zipped files of the two groups of high-resolution images.  These are 216 MB and 149 MB. (I updated these links September 8th and was able to lower the file sizes significantly).
