Originally commissioned to celebrate America's Bicentennial, we examine two artists' answers to the question: "What does Independence mean to you?" in recognition of the Fourth of July.
Today’s featured work is General Anthony Wayne, a painting by Edward Percy Moran. Moran completed the work in 1923, and he’s depicted General Wayne at the side of a wounded Revolutionary soldier who is holding the new American Flag. The two are overlooking an unknown battlefield, but, since they’re holding the flag high, we can assume that it was a victory for our fledgling nation!
