One Response to “Albert Pels (1910 – 1998)”

  1. Max Dooley said

    The very larg painting by Albert Pels (1938)hangs in the Post Office in downtown Wilmington, DE. In the website, the title is “Landing Of Swedes As [At] The Rocks In Wilmington.” Actually, it depicts the Landing of Johan Printz in 1643 at Fort Christina (now Wilmington). He was the governor of New Sweden from 1643-1653. He is said to have weighed over 300 pounds – that’s why he is such a recognizable figure in Pels painting.
