Don Troiani’s Paintings Of The Revolutionary War

Noted artist and American Rifleman contributor Don Troiani is displaying some of his original artwork at his first-ever major exhibition, which is being hosted by the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia, Pa. The exhibition opened Oct. 16 and runs until Sept. 5, 2022, in the museum’s first-floor Patriots Gallery.

The exhibition will also give visitors a chance to see Troiani’s latest painting, “Brave Men as Ever Fought,” which was commissioned by the museum in 2019 and shows a company of black and Native American troops within the ranks of the Continental Army as they march past Philadelphia’s Independence Hall on their way to Yorktown, Va. The scene was inspired by a February 1831 letter written by James Forten, who wrote, “I well remember that when the New England Regiment passed through this city on their way to attack the English Army under the command of Lord Cornwallis, there was several companies of Coloured People, as brave Men as ever fought.”

Troiani has made a career out of depicting scenes of the American Revolution, a pivotal event in world history that occurred decades before the advent of photography. Through painstaking research, collection of surviving artifacts and eyewitness accounts, Troiani’s paintings present an accurate window into the past, bringing the fighters, firearms and foremost personalities of the Revolution to life.
