Wladyslaw Theodore Benda Following the Paths of Our Fathers 1917. Super poster by acclaimed Polish-Ameerican artist W. T. Benda shows the fabled Winged Hussar leading the charge. The Hussars were aristocrats that rode in front of the army during the seige of Vienna. Hussar's saddles featured 'wings' made up of long feathers attached lightweight ribs at the back of their saddles. The feathers made a howling noise as the horses charged - an early form of psychological warfare. Scarce and brilliant.  46x32 near mint conservation backed.
