That was quite a pause, as i went home for the last days off, before i leave this job permanently in a few weeks...i am sort of getting panicky, cos i havent posted so many great cards, and my time at this pc is running out..!
Jan Matejko (1838-1893)
The Battle Of Grunwald, 1878
Poland has become quite omnipresent in postcrossing recently. The sender of this card wrote that this is the most famous polish painting - showing what is also known as The First Battle Of Tannenberg, a historic event which took place in 1410 during the Polish-Lithuanian-Teutonic War. A very expressive piece of art, i thought..!
