Les Quatre Fils Holcombe


This painting is based on the Belgian legend of the four Aymond brothers and their horse, Bayard. According to the legend, the four sons were fleeing from Charlemagne. They all rode on the great horse, Bayard, which struck the cliffs near Dinant in order to jump over the Meuse River. They got across the river and the rock split in two and is still know as the Bayard Rock
