"Architecture & Construction," Allegorical Mural Study for Rhode Island Capitol



A superb example of allegorical mural painting, this circular study depicting a female figure in Grecian robes overlooking a child with a plumb line, surrounded by scenes of construction and industry was painted by Robert Charles Haun for the Rhode Island state capitol building in Providence. One of the finest statehouses in America, designed by no less than McKim Meade & White, the rotunda was embellished with a series of murals by James Allen King. Because King's health prevented him from fully living out his plans, his drawings and studies were given to three other artists, including Haun, to carry out. This painting seems to be a highly finished study for Haun's alternative conception for one of several circular murals below the dome, dating from 1946, which was never executed. Haun's lifelong passion was the Navy and the life of its men, and painted murals for two Naval Stations in Rhode Island. (Dimension includes frame).
