New Painting Debut! Kunstler finishes the much anticipated "Washington Crossing the Delaware"


After two months of research, sketching and painting at the easel, Cove Neck historical artist Mort Künstler has finished his version of Washington Crossing the Delaware -- a project intended to retain the drama of the iconic patriotic image painted in 1851 by Emanuel Leutze while correcting its myriad historical errors.

An excerpt from Newsday's article about Kunstler's latest painting. The article was published Sunday, December 4th, and can be seen below.
