I do hope that Robert will blog the Battle in the Teutoburg Forest and related events as history in the arts, but meanwhile here is Thusnelda im Triumphzug des Germanicus by Karl Theodor von Piloty (1826-1886).
I've come perversely to enjoy this kind of uniquely – it seems to me – bombastic 19th century type of historicizing art*, paintings which in German we disrespectfully call Schinken. There is no real English equivalent for that term, I think.

In the center is a proud Thusnelda with her small son Thumelicus walking among the prisoners. Above right lounges a decadent Tiberius, with the traitor Segestes close by. Germanicus is a dim figure way in the back left (adapted from a description by Reinhard Wolters). The painting, begun in 1869, was the contribution by the German Reich to the 1873 World's Fair in Vienna. It's in the Pinakothek in Munich. A later copy, ca. 1875, is at the Met Museum in New York.
