For the very first time in a museum exhibit, nearly 50 of Don Troiani’s original paintings of the Revolutionary War are now on display at the Museum of the American Revolution. Matthew will discuss Troiani’s artistic process, how Troiani uses his collection of historic military antiques in his work, and the significance of Troiani’s paintings to our understanding of the Revolutionary War. Liberty: Don Troiani’s Paintings of the Revolutionary War is on view at the Museum of the American Revolution until September 5, 2022. Tickets and exhibit catalogs are available for purchase at amrevmuseum.org.
