View north from the Capitol cupola
This is one of four panoramic landscapes painted from a perspective atop the Old State Capitol sometime between late 1848 and early 1854. The identity of the artist is not known for sure, though it may have been one of the period;s many painters of traveling canvass panorama exhibits. The original paintings are displayed in the Old State Capitol. Comparing the 1859 photograph with this earlier landscape portrait reveals the improvement in buildings over time along the north side of the public square.
