East front of the Capitol, by Alexander Jackson Davis, ca. 1832-34

Davis made a minute examination of the Capitol’s complicated plan and recorded it in a series of drawings that remain the most accurate record of the building as first completed. He also drew this charming view of the east front showing the wood-and-copper dome framed by a pair of enormous American flags.
