French Dragoons Charging-/Franco -Prussian war-painted by William Trego.  Perhaps this painting is meant to represent the futile & desperate charges at Sedan-that achieved nothing - except admiration for this brave act of anachronistic folly-from the Prussians who systematically mowed down scores of these cavalrymen and their magnificent horses.

"The Attack at Dawn" by Alphonse de Neuville (1877) at the Walters Art Museum, Baltimore - From the curators' comments: "Rather than dwelling on France's defeat in the Franco-Prussian War (1870-1871), de Neuville, a veteran of the war, specialized in works glorifying his country's heroic resistance rather than its military defeat. He took exceptional efforts to re-create the subjects factually, revisiting the battlefields and studying the weapons, uniforms, and other paraphernalia of war."
