WE SUPPORT OUR TROOPS AND COUNTRY. THE ARTIST - Don Troiani DON TROIANI is a soul lost in time; a twentieth century artist to whom the life of the common soldier of the Civil War through the mid Eighteenth Century is as familiar and vivid as the surroundings of his Connecticut studio. While there are many other painters who have turned their attention to historical art, none have done so with the enthusiasm, insight and dedication of this accomplished recorder of drama and detail. In the spirit of presenting historical truth through art, Don Troiani has personally set uncompromising standards of excellence and authenticity in his field that few others can equal. Models are chosen with the greatest care to achieve the proper look of the men in Colonial and Victorian America.
The garb and gear of each figure are painstakingly researched. Appropriate backgrounds are found and studied, sometimes sending the artist hundreds of miles from home to examine battlefields and structures firsthand.
Because of the great amount of research that goes into one of his works, it is often years between a painting's conception and the actual moment the brush is put to canvas. "If an historical painting is not reasonably accurate, then it's worthless both as art and as a historical document, " Troiani declares. If you are going to become involved in this field then there is little excuse for a pattern of inaccuracies.Indeed, Troiani's lifelong focus on America's military heritage enables him to present that subject with a credibility that surpasses his contemporaries. For a quarter century he has methodically built one of the great private artifact collections of Civil War, 1812 and Revolutionary War, World War II uniforms, equipage, insignia and weapons which he calls on to add the unique dimension of realism he is so well known for. An expert researcher with a personal Military library of over 2,500 volumes, he is assisted in his search for the truth by a select network of advanced collectors, curators and historians whom he corresponds with regularly and who open their own collections to him.
Hollywood has enlisted him as consultant on "Civil War Uniforms and Equipage" for the acclaimed feature film "Cold Mountain" starring Nicole Kidman, Rene Zellweger and Jude Law for which he received screen credit. Also in Cold Mountain, The Journey from book to film.
" Troiani has also been military advisor(and made appearances) on the A&E and History Channel's "Civil Journal" and the miniseries "The American Revolution. Televison appearances on "Missing Reward", "Incurable Collector", and "Hunt for Amazing Treasures" are among his credits. Gordon at Gettysburg, July 1, 1863 Don Troiani S/N Limited Edition Print. As the Union 11th Corps crumbled under Confederate attacks West of the town of Gettysburg, a new danger presented itself from the North. Early's division was pressing forward towards willow tree lined Rock Creek and their dangerously exposed flank.
Among Early's Division was the Georgia Brigade commanded by fiery General John B. Riding among the slanted bayonets of his division an artilleryman described the general on his black horse, He must have been a direct descendant of... I never saw a horse's neck so arched, his eye so fierce, his nostril so dilated. The general's demeanor impressed the same observer: Gordon was the most glorious and inspiring thing I ever looked upon... Bareheaded, hat in hand, arms extended, and in a voice like a trumpet, exhorting his men.
It was superb; absolutely thrilling. In one of the most brilliant charges of the war, the Georgians hurled the Union forces back into the town insuring an overwhelming Confederate victory for the day's battle.
