Francis Back - gone but not forgotten

Back in the 1990s on the French reenactment scene we so loved his pictures. You felt they were something you could rely on for being well researched. From Louis XIV to the French revolution if you wanted a truthful illustration of the French forces it would be Francis Back where you'd go. Most of what reenactors know about capotes (pictured) is from Francis Back's research. He will be missed but remembered.

  1. He was such a great illustrator. As an amateur historical artist I'm a bit shamed I've never heard of his work before now.
