United States Capitol

Washington, DC

BCA is currently working with the Architect of the Capitol to document the original decorative painting in the Senate Connecting Corridor. This corridor links the well-known and highly ornate Brumidi Corridors to the central dome of the Capitol, and dates to the 1850s. The elaborate trompe l'œil paintings that originally adorned the Senate Connecting Corridor's walls and ceiling, depicting architectural elements such as paneling and cartouches, still remain under several layers of more modern paint.
