    Description

    Revolutionary War Soldier: Original Don Troiani Watercolor. 7.75" x 12.25" watercolor on thin white board, signed in pencil "D. Troiani 72". Titled on verso of mount: "Encounter at the Brandywine. A Private from the Pennsylvania State Regiment. February 1973 A.H. [American Heritage]." The artwork depicts a rag-tag infantryman marching along with knapsack, musket in hand and an evergreen sprig tucked in his tri-corn hat. His uniform is soiled, his jacket and breeches in shreds with a patch on one knee. Slightly comical, yet endearing, and evocative of the challenges faced by the insurgent colonists in properly maintaining and equipping a volunteer army in the field. The artwork is affixed to a larger piece of green academy board. From the Archives of American Heritage Magazine.
