This half portico detail is for a new Science and Technology Museum in Washington D.C. The drawing is over 6 feet tall and was drafted at 3/4" = 1' scale in graphite. The figures in the tympanum are, from right to left: an Allegory of Wisdom, an Allegory of Science, a Biologist, a Chemist, and an Astronomer. The piece is fully rendered in shade and shadow with charcoal.
