This is the famous painting called Washington Crossing the Delaware. This is a 1851 oil-on-canvas painting by a German American Emanuel Gottlieb Leutze . This is a painting about the George Washington crossing the Delaware River on 1776 during the American Revolution. It was from the attacks on New Jersey in the battle of Trenton. I choose this painting because I enjoy history and American history. I also love this painting feel like it is very well done.
