The Capitol, Looking Southwest, attributed to George Strickland, ink on paper, ca. 1830

This finely drawn view of the Capitol was taken from a low vantage point to emphasize the building’s elaborate carved stonework. At this perspective the roof’s many lanterns and chimneys disappear behind the balustrade.
