Death of Dionisio Alvarez Cueto

I am sad to announce that Dionisio Álvarez Cueto died (january 6) in Madrid (Spain). He was 44 years old. Dionisio was an artist who specialized in the Peninsular War and Spanish uniforms in particular.
Along with Miguel Angel Martin Mas (collaborator of the ALKAID magazine) he founded the Editorial "
Las cuatro plumas" (The four feathers) publishing "Madrid 1808. The 2nd of May for everybody". His military illustrations gave life to more than a dozen of books and numerous articles in national and foreign specialized magazines.
He will be missed
See some samples of his peculiar and unmistakable style.
