Painting of the Day #11 <ul><li>Happy 4 th of July!!! </li></ul>
Emmanuel Leutze Washington Crossing the Delaware Oil on Canvas 1851 Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY 149x255” American painting before the mid-20 th century was pretty dull. Most paintings were of historical events—like this one. Leutze was a great painter with obvious influences from the high Renaissance. Sorry to phone this PotD in folks, but it’s a half day and I’m OUTTA HERE!
