Minnesota State Capitol Building, Saint Paul – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Minnesota State Capitol:

The Minnesota State Capitol is located in Saint Paul. The building was completed in 1905 at a cost of $4.5 million dollars. The architect was Cass Gilbert, who designed many prominent buildings in the central US. Gilbert took his inspiration from Saint Peter's Basilica in Rome. The unsupported dome of the building is the second largest in the world, behind Saint Peter's. It is the third building to serve as Minnesota's capitol. The first burned down in 1881, and the second was deemed too small almost immediately after completion. One of the most notable features of the building are the gold gilded horses at the base of the dome in the front. This piece of art was designed and sculpted by Daniel Chester French and Edward Clark Potter. The four horses represent the power of nature: earth, fire, water and wind. At one time, the building had German quotations on the wall, but these were painted over during the tide of anti-German sentiment during World War II. These were later restored. The capitol building houses the Senate, House of Representatives, the Office of the Attorney General and the Office of the Governor.

Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Neuschwanstein Castle:

The Neuschwanstein Castle is a large impressive castle built on a rugged hill near the town of Fussen in Bavaria, Germany. The castle was built by King Ludwig II as a tribute to Richard Wagner. It is an extremely popular tourist destination, with an estimated 60 million people having visited it. The building was visualized by Christian Jank and realized by architect Eduard Riedel. The palace was built over the ruins of two other castles, which were completed destroyed in the process of construction. It was completed in 1873, at a massive cost to the government and people in which hundreds of craftsmen were employed. During it's construction, the castle was modified and enlarged. As it went up so did the expenses. The king and some of his family moved into the palace in 1884. Richard Wagner, whom the building was dedicated to, died in 1883 and was never able to set foot in the palace. Ludwig himself only was able to live there 172 days, before he died in 1886. The palace was never completed, and the massive expenses incurred by it's construction nearly bankrupted Bavaria. Although the official story has King Ludwig dying of accidental drowning, some theories exist that he was in fact murdered by orders of some members of the government. Ludwig was obsessed with swans, and the interior and exterior is decorated with dozens of them.

The cathedral has gone through many difficult transitions over the years, including periods of neglect, occasionally even being used for such mundane tasks as housing livestock or for storage. The cathedral also suffered vandalism at the hands of radicals during the French revolution in the 1790s. Today, though, the buildings stands in it's original glory, thanks to an extensive and painstaking restoration supervised by the French architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc. It is one of the most easily recognizable buildings in the world and one of the main tourist attractions in Paris. The profile of the cathedral was raised even higher when Victor Hugo wrote "The Hunchback of Notre Dame", published in 1831.

Paris Opern House, France – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Paris Opera House:

The Paris Opera House, also called the Palais Garnier, is a large opera designed by architect Charles Garnier. The building is done in the architectural style of Beaux-Arts. The construction began in 1862 and was completed in 1875. The building was part of the great reconstruction period of the Second Empire under Emperor Napoleon III. There were many problems with the construction, not the least of which was the the site of the building was on swampy ground that needed to be constantly pumped out as the concrete foundation was laid. The construction was also hindered by the Franco-Prussian war. But despite the setbacks and political upheaval, the building was completed and dedicated in 1875. The style of the building was extremely influential, and many notable buildings - especially other opera houses - were heavily influenced by Garnier's remarkable vision. The legend of the storied building was furthered by the novel "The Phantom of the Opera" by Gaston Leroux.
