Anything goes except books, and film on this one. Paintings and sculptures only.

Be sure to include an image. I believe there's something in the FAQ that will tell you how to do that.

Yep great portrait, and a fun depiction of what your "Musketeer" could look like.

another good one, but still second place.

Lady Butler's Scotland Forever:

I must've spent hours looking at it when I lived in Leeds – always the highlight of a visit to the City Gallery, along with this one, which may ring a bell with any collectors of the Perry Sudan range….

The Nightwatch by Rembrandt.

Turner's unfinished "Battle of Trafalgar" or the "Fighting Temeraire." The first for glory and the second for melancholy.

Possibly Paolo Uccello's San Romano paintings

This is the London one …

I'm with Dom, Butler's 'Scotland Forever' – (disclaimer – I'm Scottish, and my father was a Royal Scots Grey).. ;-)

Lady Butler's Scotland Forever for me too.
Second choice is Charlie Russell's Lewis and Clark Meeting the Flatheads.

This one. It hangs in my office.

This one is in 2nd place and is in the same office.

The first is "Three Cheers for Louisiana" and the officer is PGT Beauregard. Painted by Rocco.

The second is Kursk and painted by Trudgian. The vehicles are based on real planes and tanks and their officers were able to sign my print. I'm told they were Good Germans and just following orders!
