This photograph of a major painting at the Metropolitan Museum of Art was obtained for free by Blogfinger thanks to a new program at the Met where anyone can obtain a photo of any of 375,000 works of art obtained from their web site. There is no charge, and the users can do anything they wish with the image including putting it on a coffee cup. This program will be huge for education and media.
This image represents our first attempt to take advantage of the program.
The painting shows George Washington and 2,400 men crossing the Delaware River from Bucks County, Pennsylvania to attack 1,500 Hessian soldiers in Trenton, New Jersey on December 25, 1776.
Thanks to George Washington and his men, Bruce and the rest of us enjoy our freedoms of speech today. Springsteen captures the American energy depicted in Luetze’s portrayal of this Christmas attack.
