Capitol Circles

Interior, Dome, US Capitol, Washington, DC

The current dome on the US Capitol in Washington, DC, is the second dome to grace the structure. Designed by Thomas U. Walter, the dome was influenced by classical European domes; it replaced a wooded dome completed by Charles Bulfinch in 1824. Built between 1854 and 1865, the new dome was made of fireproof cast iron painted to look like stone.   Constantino Brumidi painted a fresco, The Apotheosis of Washington, on a platform above the interior dome’s oculus.

Gouverneur Kemble Warren (1830 –1882), a civil engineer and Union Army general during the American Civil War, is remembered for the July 2, 1863 defense of Little Round Top during the Battle of Gettysburg.  A bronze statue of Warren by Karl Gerhardt (1853–1940) overlooks the battlefield from Little Round Top in Gettysburg National Military Park. It was dedicated in 1888.

Ceiling of Christian IV’s chapel, Roskilde Cathedral, Roskilde, Denmark

Roskilde Cathedral is the burial site of Denmark’s kings and Queens. Work on the nave and central structure of the church dates to the 13th century. Over time, as space for burials ran out, chapels were added to the sides of the cathedral. Construction of King Christian IV’s Dutch Renaissance style burial chapel began in 1641 and was completed in 1641. The interior decoration, however, was not added until the 19th century. The starry vaulted ceiling and allegorical paintings were executed by Heirich Eddelien between 1845 and 1852.
