Sugary History

The Landing of William Penn by the American history painter Jean Leon Gerome Ferris (1863-1930). There are a lot of nice (schoolbook) details, all the different costumes, the Native Americans, the trapper, the soldier, dutch settlers etc. There is even the year of the landing on the building.
Though it's sugary, too sweet, more like a costume ball.
