Ugh, I am depressed. A Troiani print I had ordered was damaged in shipping and has been ruined.

It was a print from 1984, "Union Drummer, 1863"

The shipping company is supposed to be refunding me for the damaged print however I am just sad that one of his older/classic prints is now gone.

Kind of makes you wonder what the attrition/survival rate of any given print edition is 30+ years on. I wouldn't be surprised if only half the number remain in good or excellent condition. UV damage and fading probably accounts for the greatest damage over the years.

I first met Don back in the late 1970's and have been a fan ever since. Years later after he had become a successful artist, I bit the bullet and acquired several original paintings. In retrospect it was definitely the right decision.

I must admit one of mine was a damaged print that had been creased when something fell on it while it was rolled up. Bronze Guns and Iron Men (Pelham at Fredericksburg) sold at the time in the $700 range on the secondary market, but because of the crease I was able to pick it up in lieu of $200 the owner of the shop owed me for watching the shop in his absence. It looks great in its frame and unless you knew about the crease probably wouldn't even notice it!

I know @7th Texas Mounted Rifles would love this!

Hey, @AUG351 !

Thanks bud, and i suppose i am indebted to you as i do not have facebook and therefore haven't seen this!

You sir, are spot on - and this is my new favorite Troiani print for sure.

I love how he used the previous 5th TX piece and worked around it...

Actually I don't have a Facebook account either, but you can still check out Troiani's page here:

And yeah, great sense of movement in this one. I can't help but wonder if the officer on the white horse is supposed to be Capt. Willis L. Lang?

I'm not sure if someone has posted this before but here is a rare old Troiani
Its posted back on page 6, titled "The Defeated". I believe its supposed to be after the Confederate victory at Valverde in the New Mexico Campaign, and those are Union prisoners being escorted away by Sibley's Texans. Its a nice one; wish I could see a higher res copy.

Also, not long go I ran across this piece by Troiani, titled "Little Round Top", which depicts the 5th Texas Infantry cresting the hill. Love this one. Haven't actually purchased a print, but I'm thinking about it!
