The United States Capitol: Designing and Decorating a National Icon is a product of this revival of scholarly interest. The book combines the papers from the U.S. Capitol Historical Society's first two conferences dedicated to the visual history and appreciation of this most significant of public buildings in the United States.
The first six papers in the collection focus on the roles of the architects of the Capitol from the contentious and delay-ridden first decade of construction through the twentieth-century expansion and modernization. The six essays in the book's second section examine a variety of topics relating to the Capitol's artistic decoration, including the origins of Statuary Hall, the mural Westward Ho and other paintings and artistic embellishments.
