    Looking for a high resolution version of this painting



    And if anyone knows the name of the artist, that would be great, too.

    I believe azwildcat96 is correct. That painting appears to be called "Warriors" and prints are available here:

    Right. The title is "Warriors" -- go here and see page 3:

    It was used as a front cover for a book.

    The photo on amazon is a bit higher res.

    I use TinEye to search for copies of pictures and will find even edited copies.

    I sure do like that painting. The wife and I bought a print at Lord Nelsons in Gettysburg when we were on our honeymoon.

    The artist is indeed Robert Griffing and the title is Warriors.
