  • As a young adjutant to General Washington, the American painter John Trumbull witnessed from a safe distance the Battle of Bunker Hill in 1775. Living in London ten years later, he painted the battle. His picture is one of the greatest and best-known of all American history paintings. Walsh looks at it in detail to see how Trumbull constructed it, to what extent he reflects the historical record, and the ways fiction serves his purposes better than mere fact. John Walsh is Director Emeritus of the J. Paul Getty Museum.
