In 1908, what American artist painted elaborate murals in the newly completed Pennsylvania State Capitol Building?

Answer:

EDWIN AUSTIN ABBEY

In 1908, Edwin Austin Abbey began an ambitious program of murals and other artworks for the newly completed Pennsylvania State Capitol in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. These included allegorical medallion murals for the dome of the Rotunda, four large lunette murals beneath the dome, and multiple works for the House and Senate Chambers. He was working on the Reading of the Declaration of Independence mural in early 1911, when he was diagnosed with cancer. Abbey died in August 1911, leaving two rooms of the commission unfinished.
