DON TROIANI is a soul lost in time; a twenty-first century artist to whom the life of the common soldier of the American Revolution through the Civil War is as familiar and vivid as the surroundings of his Connecticut studio.
While there are other painters who have turned their attention to historical art, none have done so with the enthusiasm, insight and historical accuracy 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.
Period settings are found and researched, 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.
"You can look at a picture of an artifact for days and still not know it. But examining it in your own hands reveals its texture, its substance and how it works ..."
