    Jan Chelminski, "General Horace Porter", oil on board, 26' x 21.5" (sight size), framed in a period frame to an overall size of 29.25" x 25", signed lower right "Jan V. Chelminski".

    Jan Van Chelminski (1851-1925) was a famous Polish painter of the late 19th and early 20th centuries who was widely collected by the wealthy on both sides of the Atlantic. Chelminski's most memorable paintings are of military leaders. French, English, and even American military leaders are either painted alone on horseback or in the midst of their military setting, having with them an entourage of assistants and Generals. These military paintings stretch from subjects of the Napoleonic Wars to the First World War but are always traditional compositions displaying a high degree of skill.
