Unidentified artist (formerly attributed to Felix O.C. Darley), Entry of George Washington into New York in 1783, ca. 1857–66
Oil on canvas. Promised gift of Elie and Sarah Hirschfeld, Scenes of New York City
This painting celebrates Evacuation Day. Once an official holiday, it honored the British Army’s retreat from New York at the end of the Revolutionary War and General Washington’s triumphal procession through the city. Only the Indigenous man leaning away from the procession signals unease over American military victory.
