Washington Captivates Obama

This painting fascinated President Barack Obama yesterday during his visit to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Thomas Sully of Philadelphia painted this scene of George Washington preparing his men to cross the Delaware River on a frigid December 25, 1776 night. The original painting measures 17X12 and weighs 1000 lbs. It is title “The Passage of the Delaware”…it is easy to see why it captured the attention of the president.
