Washington Crossing the Delaware by Emanuel Leutze, 1851.

The famous painting depicting "Washington Crossing the Delaware" is up for auction next month. WHYY's Alan Yu has more.

(Original air-date: 4/30/22)

Alan was all set on majoring in biology, but then he realized he liked writing about science more than doing research, so he left Hong Kong and went to study journalism in the U.S. After interning at NPR and WBEZ in Chicago, he has never wanted to work anywhere outside of public radio. He covers space and all other kinds of innovation. He enjoys comic books, LEGO, and dragon boating.
