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.

 Washington Crossing the Delaware - 1851






Mrs. Schuyler Burning Her Wheat Fields on the Approach of the British




Storming of the Teocalli by Cortez and his troops - 1848




Columbus before the Queen - 1943

Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890)

Vincent Van Gogh is a Dutch, but he lived many years of his life in France.
