The Metropolitan Museum of Art houses the famous Emanuel Leutze painting of George Washington Crossing the Delaware. Clicking on the additional images takes you deep into the painting. You can see the expressions on the boatmen’s faces, the treacherous ice in the river, a good look at every section of the boat, and even the horses in the background which are attempting to cross also. The lighting is worthy of study all by itself. Enlarge each image to examine each part carefully.
