I especially love Jan Matejko's works:
Battle of Grunwald (battle scene).
Battle of Vienna (Sobieski delivering message of victory to Pope).
Battle of Racławice (aftermath of battle).December 25, 2011 at 7:33 am #366372

Panorama Racławicka (Wrocław, Poland )http://www.panoramaraclawicka.pl/en_index.htm
The paintings from Panorama Racławicka made by Jan Styka and Wojciech Kossak and assisted by Ludwik Boller, Tadeusz Popiel, Zygmunt Rozwadowski, Teodor Axentowicz, Włodzimierz Tetmajer, Wincenty Wodzinowski and Michał Sozański.
The Racławice Panorama (Polish: Panorama racławicka) is a monumental (15 × 114 meter) cycloramic painting depicting the Battle of Racławice, during the Kościuszko Uprising. It is currently located in Wrocław, Poland. The painting is one of only a few preserved relics of a genre of 19th century mass culture, and the oldest in Poland. The panorama stands in a circular fashion and, with the viewer in the center, presents different scenes at various viewing angles. A special kind of perspective used in the painting and additional effects (lighting, artificial terrain) create a feeling of reality. (wikipedia)
