Painting of "The Signing of the Magna Carta" | Photograph | Wisconsin Historical Society
Painting, in the Wisconsin State Capitol, of "The Signing of the Magna Carta," one of four mural paintings by Albert Herter on the north wall of the Supreme Court. The subject of this painting was chosen as a fitting pendant to the Signing of the American Constitution. King John sits at one end of a table before the royal canopy. Behind the king are the bishops of London and Dublin and other prelates. A mail-clad knight stands at the other end of the table. Behind the knight are other barons.
