Washington Crossing the Delaware

“Painted by Emanuel Leutze in 1851, this famous canvas, measuring 21 by 12 feet, has been on display since February 1952 in the Washington Crossing Methodist Church at Washington Crossing, Pennsylvania. The painting is on loan from the Metropolitan Museum of Art to the Washington Crossing Park Commission. Here it has been viewed annually by more than 100,000 visitors who have come to admire America’s best known historical painting.”

This card is marked as copyrighted in 1962, with an item number of 56470, and published by The Scheller Company of Hackettstown, New Jersey. The actual painting has since been returned to the Met.
