Thomas Paine



Frame: 9 7/8” x 7 ½”; Sight: 7” x 4 ½”


The work of Thomas Paine, an English-American political activist, philosopher, and revolutionary, had a profound impact on the American and French revolutions. His most famous works include "Common Sense" and "The Rights of Man." It is no surprise that his portrait was featured in the Literary Magazine of London in September of 1791. The portrait, painted by Charles Wilson Peale and engraved by William W. Angus, captures the essence of Paine's intellectual and political contributions during a critical time in history. It serves as a reminder of the power of ideas and the importance of speaking truth to power.
