Came across this example by Koekkoek. Not AZW but what a fantastic painting. If he had managed to turn his Frith sketch into the finished article it would have been quite something. May be out there somewhere. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I agree a fantastic painting. I had never heard of him until yesterday but his military work is outstanding. If my Zulu war paintings turned out anywhere near this good I would well pleased.
