Boston Public Library Copley Square Boston, MA will be my next Watercolor Challenge!

Boston Public Library in Copley Square in Boston, MA was built in 1895 and designed by Charles Follen McKim of McKim, Mead, and White. It is a fine example of Renaissance Revival Architecture. Bibliotheque Sainte-Genevieve (1851) in Paris is the major inspiration for the façade's order and arrangement. Pink Milford Granite is used as was common at the time. The Philip Johnson addition, seen at the right rear, was built between 1967-1972. It is also of pink Milford granite with similar proportions seen through a post modernist lens.
