This scarf features an iconic American painting by the artist Emanuel Leutze. Leutze finished a first version of the painting in 1850, but just after it was completed, it was damaged by fire in his studio. It was subsequently restored, but then in 1942, during World War II, was destroyed in an Allied bombing raid. The second painting, a replica of the first, and even bigger, was then ordered by a Parisian art trader and it was placed on exhibition in New York in 1851. It was at this exhibition that Marshall O. Roberts bought the canvas for the then-enormous sum of $10,000. Many studies for the painting exist, as do copies by other artists, and it now firmly ranks as a true piece of American national iconography.
