How to Use
An Immersive Tour of Liberty
The first major exhibition of Troiani’s original artwork, Liberty plunged on-site visitors, and continues to plunge online visitors, into some of the most pivotal events of America’s fight for independence and reveals Troiani’s research-based artistic process. This special exhibition brought together for the first time in public more than 45 of Troiani’s original Revolutionary War paintings and pairs them with dozens of artifacts from his personal collection as well as the Museum and other lenders. His paintings capture the reality and drama of crucial moments such as the 1775 Battle of Bunker Hill, General Washington’s daring 1776 attack on Trenton, the 1777 Battles of Saratoga and Oriskany, and the Franco-American victory at Yorktown in 1781.
