Product description
Located in the Rotunda of the United States Capitol building, the “Frieze of American History” completely encircles the interior of the massive dome. The painting depicts significant events in American history in a monochromatic technique known as grisaille which resembles sculpture. It is painted in true fresco style, meaning the paint is applied directly to wet plaster and becomes part of the wall. Over 8 feet high and 300 feet long, the panoramic frieze begins with the symbolic “America and History” panel and leads right into the “Landing of Columbus,” eventually coming full circle to end with the “Birth of Aviation.”
