EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a significant moment in history - the Battle of Crecy, which took place on 26th August 1346. The image is a detailed section from the Chroniques de Froissart, a manuscript dating back to the 14th century. It showcases the intensity and chaos of medieval warfare. In this particular scene, we witness an attack on the battlefield. The exterior setting portrays a grim and brutal atmosphere as soldiers engage in combat with their weapons raised high. A brave bearer carries a standard, symbolizing allegiance and unity amidst the chaos. The troops are comprised of archers armed with longbows and crossbows, showcasing their skillful marksmanship that played a crucial role in battles during this era. Flags flutter proudly above them, representing different factions involved in the Hundred Years War between England and France. The detail captured by Froissart's manuscript illumination transports us back to this pivotal moment in time when English forces clashed with French counterparts near Crecy Castle. This battle marked one of many conflicts during this prolonged war that shaped European history. This stunning print serves as both an artistic masterpiece and historical artifact, allowing us to appreciate the bravery and sacrifice exhibited by those who fought on these ancient battlefields centuries ago.
