The Boston Public Library hired me to photograph these adored and massive murals found at the central library. These murals had never been photographed professionally for conservation and archival purposes. Over two days and with two assistants, I had the privilege of photographing and seeing close up these historical and magnificent works. John Singer Sargent
murals were installed 1895-1919, Edwin Austin Abbey's
murals were installed 1895-1902, and Pierre Puvis de Chavannes
murals were installed in 1895-1896. (click on each artist's name to read more about these works of art at the BPL).
