This image is a second look at the ‘Great Hall’ of the building. This is the last one from this series, thanks to all for viewing, reviewing and commenting!
This link points directly to information about the Great Hall:
This is a ceiling area from the ‘Great Hall’ of the building. It features, among other things, paintings of two women. On the left is a painting labeled ‘Tradition’ on the right one labeled ‘Erotica’. I have to wonder about that label!
A big thanks to Markus Sholz for providing a link to an online tour of the building:
This is another of the ceilings of one of the ten reading rooms of the library. These reading rooms are not all currently used for reading but some are used for exhibits. For example, one is used to display US President Thomas Jefferson’s collection of books which was offered by him to the Library of Congress to form the basis of the current library.
The Library has been housed since 1897 in a Italian Renaissance-style building near the US Capitol in Washington, D.C.
This image is of the ceiling and its bordering area of one of the ten reading rooms of the library. This one is decorated with a painting labeled ‘Conquest’ and the names of conquerors, explorers and artists from the past.
