Kansas State Capitol - Online tour - Curry murals unfinished

Curry sketchThese scenes are only a portion of the murals Curry had planned for the Capitol. Eight panels in the rotunda were proposed to depict the life of the homesteader. Because of the criticism of Curry’s work and opposition to removing marble panels to create additional space for more murals, the eight scenes were never painted. In protest, Curry refused to sign his work, declaring it unfinished.
