This episode is best experienced in gallery 760 in The American Wing. If you can’t visit the Museum in person, you might want to take a look at Emanuel Leutze’s Washington Crossing the Delaware (1851), Albert Bierstadt’s The Rocky Mountains, Lander’s Peak (1868), and Jules Tavernier’s Dance in a Subterranean Longhouse at Clearlake, California (1878).
