biography of Théodore Fort

The Frenchman Théodore Fort mainly painted military subjects, a flourishing genre in the 19th century with its many minor wars and the clash of weapons. Especially in France, Germany and England there were many enthusiasts. In addition to large, heroic canvases of battles and acclaimed soldiers, there were also numerous painters who supplied the market with work of smaller dimensions. Fort was one of them. He possessed great knowledge of military uniforms and excelled in painting horses, both still and in action. That is why his work is also loved by horse lovers.
