The Battle of San Romano by Georges Schwizgebel

A movement within a painting, which begins with the savagery of a battle and comes to a halt in a rendition of a masterpiece of the 15th Century; 'The Battle of San Romano' by Paolo Uccello.

Swiss animation director and artist Georges Schwizgebel, from Le vol d' Icare (1974) till his latest 'Darwin's Notebook' (2020) is a committed auteur of the impressions, solidly rooted in both art, history and human empathy -without many cuts in between.
