Is this the best Zulu War print? I think so.

The detail is certainly amazing. Steve, Who's the artist. And what date was it released.

Hi Steve
It's a decent one no doubt about it . I think several are better , Askew's ' Saving The Guns ' at Isandlwana , Fripps which is the Iconic last stand of the 24th , '' At Bay '' not to sure who did it ? . I do seem to remember that this Ulundi Print is quite large ? ,
obviously , it isnt in the paper ! , I seem to recall seeing copies of the print which were 6 feet or so in length , unless that is what the original painting was in size , whatever the case I know it's big ! .

Hi Gary

I think the Ulundi print is from a watercolour sketch by Melton Prior. Did he do a painting as well?

I'm not a fan of Askew myself, I find him a bit garish, but that's just me.

Fripp is glorious I agree, but you can do so much more with an oil painting I think. It would be nice to have a contemporary engraving of that one.

I also agree about "At Bay" (Godfroy Durand a Frenchman).

Steve,

I've got to agree Jason Askew's works aren't my cup of tea either.

I tend to go off the beaten track to look for things now and found this German print the other day online:

Hi Steve / JY
Yes , that's the one by Durand , I've been getting a few of my prints framed and I think '' At Bay '' will be next , although I think I'd like a hand coloured one , have you or JY seen one recently ? . I saw one but it was only a smallish one from memory ?.
Interesting interpretation the German perspective JY ? .
