About this product
- DescriptionIn this collection rewned artist Don Troiani teams up with leading artefact historian James L. Kochan to present the American Revolution as it has existed only in our imaginations: in living colour. From Bunker Hill to Yorktown, from Washington to Cornwallis, from the Minute Men to the Black Watch, these pages are packed with scenes of grand action and great characters, recreated in the vivid blues and reds that defined the Revolutionary era. Troiani's depictions of these legendary fife-and-drum soldiers are based on firsthand accounts and, wherever possible, surviving artefacts. Scores of colour photographs of these objects - many of them from private collections and seen here for the very first time - accompany the paintings. Items range from muskets and beautifully ornate swords to more unique pieces such as badges with unit insignia or patriotic slogans and Baron von Steuben's liquor chest. More than just a glimpse into a world long past, this is the closest the modern reader can get to experiencing the Revolutionary War firsthand.
- Author BiographyDon Troiani attended the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and New York City's Art Students League. His first Civil War print was released in 1980, and in 1984 he established Historical Art Prints to distribute his work. His artwork is in numerous major collections, including American Heritage magazine, the National Park Service, the U. S. Military Academy at West Point, the Pentagon, and the Smithsonian Institute.
