Event Description

Amy E. Burton, Office of the Senate Curator
“Much More than Landscapes, Part 1: Brumidi, Congress, and the American West”

Amy Elizabeth Burton is the assistant Curator for the Office of Senate Curator. Her first book, To Make Beautiful the Capitol: Rediscovering the Art of Constantino Brumidi, was published in 2014. Specialized interests in ornithology and horticulture drive her current study of the flora and fauna depicted in the 19th-century murals of the Brumidi Corridors. In 2009, she directed a documentary based on the extensive restoration of the Senate’s Civil War-era painting, Henry Clay in the U.S. Senate. Burton earned her B.A. from Sweet Briar College and her M.A. in art history from Indiana University.
