world pictures The Eastern United States: Harrisburg, Bellefonte, and Boalsburg

This is the one on the right. It's called "The Burden of Life: The Broken Law." Its more cheerful companion is "Love and Labor: The Unbroken Law." Both were by George Barnard, a Pennsylvania-born sculptor who spent much of his life in Paris. This one seems awfully gloomy for a nation that demands perpetual boosterism, but Barnard wrote that "the subjects seemed to me peculiarly appropriate for the headquarters of a Legislature." It's almost as if he anticipated Huston's corruption and its aftermath. Barnard planned four other sculptures, but the budget was cut and these two were the only ones made.
