The eerie silence amongst the crew, the sound of ice crashing against the side of the wooden boat. The painfully cold air nipping at every inch of bare skin. Shaking, nervous hands awaiting battle. But in your moment of you look up, you are empowered at the sight of General George Washington, ready to lead an idea, an army, and a nation. No longer are your hands shaking from fear but now from anticipation to prove that your newly founded nation will preserve itself. That is the feeling one gets when they put themselves in the painting “George Washington's Crossing of the Delaware” by Emanuel Leutze. Finished it 1851 this painting depicts the famous scene when General George Washington of the American continental army, crosses the icy and frigid Delaware river Christmas night in 1776. General Washington planned
The painting shows how the Americans progress is coming along so well, but on the other side of the painting it shows the Natives fleeing from them. On one side of the painting it is bright with the American progress, on the other it is dark showing the Natives and the buffalo running away from the Americans. Because that's what the Americans were doing, whether they meant to or not i'm not sure. The Native Americans were being pushed across North America to the west by the settlers.
The art work that is analyzed below is the “Noah Sacrificing Deluge” by Benjamin West. This particular painting was painted in the 1800s and the artist used an Oil Paint on a canvas. This art was 1 out of 36 in a series for the Windsor Castle in England. Mr. West lived to be 82 years old and was the first Americans to become a success on the foreign market.

”The Rocky Mountains” is a historical painting. It was one of the most popular paintings painted in 1863 and it seemed to capture the unexplored west in the imagination of people in the in the east. In 1867 H.T. Tuckerman wrote about this painting in his book “Book of the Artists”, he described it as “Representing the sublime range which guards the remote West, its subject is eminently national; and the spirit in which it is executed is at once patient and comprehensive— patient in the careful reproduction of the tints and traits which make up and identify its local character, and comprehensive in the breadth, elevation, and grandeur of the composition.” In my opinion if a work of art that is unrealistic gets this much attention from the people and authors of books, it must be a considered as a historical piece of
The image shows Manifest Destiny through use of saturation of colours, light and dark, detail, and symbolism. The painting was called American progress to show how the Americans had a god forsaken right to the land. This painting is displaying how the people are pushing with this idea of holiness, but are in the process moving the darkness, or the native people and creatures, out of their homes. The light seems to be spreading forward, and the darkness receding farther and farther away to demonstrate the “cleansing” of the land.

Joseph Griffith has created quite a strange painting if you only focus on the surface. When you only look at the surface of The Surrender painting you may think to yourself, “How in the world does any of this go together?” It may be a little confusing at first to try to link Robocop, Waldo and George Washington riding a giant triceratops together when you just focus on the surface material. However, this painting has a deeper meaning. Joseph Griffith is trying to make a statement through his painting The Surrender by linking all of these random components together with a hidden meaning.
The Battle of Trenton. As soon as George Washington’s famous Delaware River crossing, he and the Continental Army marched into Trenton, New Jersey. This March included horses, guns, wagons, and soldiers. The group stretched for nearly a mile long.
This commemorative coin was based off of the Capitol building in Colonial Williamsburg. The Capitol was where Patrick Henry gave his speech Caesar Brutus. This speech was very inspirational and important to the colonists. This is why on the front side of the coin Patrick Henry’s face is shown along with his famous words “Give me liberty, or give me death!” These very inspirational words are a sign of liberty which is why on the back is the Grand Union Flag.
The iconic design of the Stars and Stripes on the American flag has been a symbol of hope to every citizen in America since its making. Every time an American citizen sees these stars and stripes, they are reminded of their safe home in the United States of America. Every time a soldier sees the flag, they are reminded of what they are fighting for. They are fighting for the freedom that every citizen in the United States takes for granted, yet they still bravely fight for that freedom. As children, we were taught that Betsy Ross was the woman to thank for the flag that we see today.
The detail was changed by Revere most likely to make the viewers of the engraving to feel bad for colonists and see the soldiers as blood
