Wisconsin State Capital Feild Trip















































































































































































































The Capital Building pictures were taken with the little camera.

The light in that building is something else, not to mention --holy gilded building batman!

The reddish picture in the middle is of the Governor's conference room -- that's Winnie in the Governor's chair.
Click on the dome picture (6th from the bottom) to see better detail and to see the W's surrounding the center painting.

Wow. That is some architecture! Looks very European, somehow. I'd love to find out how old it is.

wordtryst -- I thought Gilded age (187? to 1889) for sure, but actually it was an ongoing project for years and years. The final architect, I think started the expansion in there, or just after (progressive era) -- he died before it was finished in 1917.

Here's a timeline:

As a painter, and not including the murals -- just from the straight colored details standpoint...looking at it in person, wow, so much detail.
