About this title:

Synopsis: Orlando Norie is considered to have been one of the foremost illustrators of the British army in the 19th century, with thousands of watercolors to his credit in public and private collections. His pictures are highly sought after and command high prices. Yet his life remained a mystery that is only now being uncovered. Many of these wonderful pictures are revealed here for the first time. The Anne S.K. Brown Military Collection in Brown University Library, Providence, Rhode Island, USA, possesses one of the largest, if not the largest public collection of original military watercolors by Orlando Norie. The pictures in the Brown military collection range from single figure uniform studies or composites, to genre and battle scenes and at least one named portrait. These are published as a group for the first time along with Michel Tomasek's masterful account of Norie's life, including comments on the artist's British pictures by Peter Harrington.

About the Author: Peter Harrington, a native of Manchester, England, is currently the curator of the Anne S. K. Brown Military Collection at the John Hay Library of Brown University, Rhode Island, USA. He is an authority on artists and war and has written extensively on the subject, including British Artists and War: The Face of Battle in Paintings and Prints (1993), as well as organising a number of exhibitions on war art. This is his third book in the Osprey Campaign series, his others being Campaign 12: Culloden 1746 and Campaign 35: Plassey 1757.
