Our framed canvas print, Washington Crossing the Delaware, commemorates the critical moment in the American Revolution when George Washington led a surprise attack against Hessian troops supporting the British forces in Trenton. Self-taught artist George Washington Marks (1795-1879) copied in oil this storied scene after a painting by Thomas Sully.
The museum’s reproduction is printed on canvas and framed in yellow poplar with black finish and gold painted trim. The canvas print is 4 x 6 inches, and the frame measures 7.75 x 9.75 inches. Ready to hang with a saw tooth hanger.
The original work is in the Folk Art Collection of Elie and Viola Nadelman at the New-York Historical Society.
