Emanuel Gottlieb Leutze, American Painter

Emanuel Gottlieb Leutze (1816 - 1868)

Leutze was an ambitious young American. He set a goal to be a successful painter and worked conscientiously toward that aim. He studied constantly and worked faithfully. His work idealized the history of his country and its great men. He admired Washington and his courageous leadership, and by the faithfulness of its portrayal of the man and the moment, his "Crossing of the Delaware" immortalized the birth of Liberty as a hard-earned fact, not merely as an ideal penned courageously in the Declaration of Independence.

Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890)

Vincent Van Gogh is a Dutch, but he lived many years of his life in France. Van Gogh early in life had wanted to become a pastor or vicar, and worked as a preacher among very poor but gave away all of his property and became ill. Brother Theo came to his rescue. He wrote letters to his brother who financially supported him through his life.
