California State Capitol at Sunrise, Sacramento, California

California, one of the largest and most populous states in the United States, has a rich history that is reflected in its landmarks and monuments. Among the most prominent of these is the State Capitol Building, located in the heart of Sacramento, the state capital. The Capitol Building is not only a symbol of California's political power, but also a testament to the state's architectural heritage.

The construction of the California State Capitol Building was a monumental undertaking that lasted several years. The building was designed by architect Reuben S. Clark and was built between 1860 and 1874, during a period of significant growth and change in California. The construction of the Capitol Building was a significant investment for the state, as it was meant to serve as the seat of government and to reflect the state's aspirations for the future.

The Capitol Building is a remarkable structure that reflects a unique blend of architectural styles. The original design was heavily influenced by the neoclassical style, which was popular in the mid-19th century. The building's exterior is characterized by a distinctive dome, which was inspired by the United States Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. The dome is made of wood and covered in a layer of copper, and stands at an impressive height of 210 feet, making it one of the tallest domes in the world.

The interior of the Capitol Building is equally impressive, with ornate details and decorations that reflect the state's diverse cultural heritage. The building's rotunda is particularly noteworthy, with its soaring ceilings, marble floors, and intricate paintings and murals. The rotunda once featured a bronze statue of Queen Isabella of Spain, who is credited with funding Christopher Columbus' voyage to the Americas, but was removed in 2020.

In addition to serving as the seat of government, the Capitol Building has played an important role in California's legislative and cultural history. The building has been the site of many historic events, including the ratification of the state's constitution in 1879 and the inauguration of several governors. It has also served as a venue for public events and celebrations, including concerts, exhibits, and festivals.

TruLife® Acrylic Face Mount Print - Ready To Hang

TruLife® Acrylic Face Mount Print - Ready To Hang

The most luxurious of fine art prints, TruLife® Acrylic face mount prints have a 3d-like appearance due to the print being sandwiched between museum-quality acrylic and a solid backer medium. The paper is specifically made for face mounted prints and features a pearl-like luminescence. When light hits the acrylic, it refracts through the artwork and gives off an appearance of having been illuminated from within. These are the most vibrant and detailed prints I offer. Acrylic prints are best suited for hanging in homes.
