Carrie Rebora Barratt, Associate Director for Collections and Administration
The monumentality and iconic subject matter of the famed Emanuel Leutze painting make it the centerpiece of the new American Wing, where it now hangs after three years of extensive conservation and reframing. This series addresses the picture itself, as well as its timeless appeal.
In this talk, Carrie Rebora Barratt will discuss the 1851 painting and its history at the Met.
This series is made possible by the Clara Lloyd-Smith Weber Fund.
