20 x 30 cm | 7.87 x 11.81 in

Guy, a former soldier in the Sugarcane Army of Sainte Domingue fought in the 50 Years's War in Europe against the Frenglish Empire for Prussia. Originally stationed in Berlin, he traveled south to Bavaria and later on to the Tyrolean Alps. A skilled fighter in the mountains, the locals called him Guido and later, Dolomiti. He met Giovanna Gonzaga (Gigi) of Mantua and fell in love. They had a son but they were kidnapped by the cunning, and duplicitous Karlheinz, Duke of Innsbruck. Dolomiti, became a one man army and fought his way through battle after battle and eventually recovered his lover but could not rescue his son. Many songs were written for him.

The artwork is part of the series "La Leggenda di Dolomiti"
