The Metropolitan Museum of Art Selected Frames
Washington Crossing the Delaware
by Emmanuel Leutze at The Metropolitan Museum of Art
Eli Wilner & Company created a hand-carved and gilded replica of the lost original frame for Washington Crossing the Delaware by Emanuel Leutze. This frame is the focal point of the renovated American Wing at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The frame's opening size is over 12 x 21 feet, and is surmounted by an elaborate construction twelve feet across displaying an eagle, flags, pikes, a banner and other regalia.
