Pair of panels featuring "Battle Scene in a Landscape" and "Soldiers in a Landscape". The two scenes have a similar composition, with a foreground framed by trees and animated with figures, and a background with lake and mountains.
These panels are attributed to Elias Martin (1739-1818), a Swedish landscape and history painter. He worked for ten years in England, and is best known for his landscapes with typically Nordic atmosphere and romantic lighting effects.
