    tom lovell

    This illustrator was new to me until today. My dad gave me an old National Geographic book "The Age of Chivalry" which included several paintings Tom Lovell did for them.

    Here are 5 that I liked:

    viking market:
    tom lovell

    norsemen raiding a monastary:
    tom lovell

    viking feast:
    tom lovell

    battle of Hastings:
    tom lovell

    the end of the siege of Nicea:
    tom lovell

    and here's a link to a google image search on him: http://images.google.com/images?svnu...ll&btnG=Search

    If anyone else knows more about him or has other images to contribute, please do so! He reminds me a bit of E. A. Abbey, strong historical research but still very painterly and dynamic.
