The Death of General Warren was painted by John Trumbull who was called a great “patriot-artist” by many. The exact date of the painting is not known however it is said to be painted after 1815- but before 1831. The actual death of General Warren took place on June 17th 1775 at the Battle of Bunker Hill. This painting accentuates the actual of death of General Warren by using light compared to the rest of the painting. The greater amount of British soldiers compared to the amount of Colonists soldiers was well depicted in this painting. Due to the fact that at the battle of Bunker Hill many more British soldiers were present than Colonists. Another important thing that I noticed in the photo was the fact that General Warren is being protected by a British General. This is important because John Trumbull fought in the war and this shows that at times of war people can still be humane and help others even the enemy. this painting connects with American identity because it shows the fight and work ethic that the colonists had in fighting the British. Even though they were bound to lose this battle they still fought and ended up scaring the British so badly that they became timid and ended up losing the war. This fight and drive to succeed is something that is still associated with the America of today.
