Russian Cossaks. [in pencil.]
Engraving. Sheet 185 x 110mm (7¼ x 4¼"). Trimmed within plate, laid on album paper, fold flattened, some soiling.
Two Cossack soldiers and a camp follower. George (Georg Johann) Scharf (1788-1860), a German artist who accompanied the Waterloo Campaign, after which he came to England with the British army. It is likely that he sketched these Cossacks shortly after the Battle of Waterloo. On the reverse of the album sheet is a fine coloured stipple of the Allied Monarchs after Waterloo.
