The Crusades, paperback cover, 1962
Gouache on board
29.5 x 19.5 in.
This illustration was used on the cover of Richard Suskind's book, The Crusades, Ballantine Books #F-573, 1962.
"Here are men whose names flash like steel--Richard the Lion-hearted, Saladin, the legendary Prester John. And here are the anonymous thousands--knights, beggars, lords and priests--men who joined the crusades out of religious zeal, or the ambition to carve out a private kingdom in the East, or simply to share in the rape and pillage that followed victory."
From the Collection of Betty Ballantine.
