Emanuel Leutze painted his two versions of Washington Crossing the Delaware in Düsseldorf, shortly after the failed revolutions of 1848. “His intention was not to ignite the patriotic passions of Americans, but to inspire his fellow Germans to be as patriotic as he knew Americans were.”  (The Washington Post, 12/25/22)
