Triumph of Religion
Located on the 3rd floor of the Boston Public Library's McKim Building are spectacular murals entitled Triumph of Religion and painted by John Singer Sargent. The theme of this unusual series is the development of world religions. Sargent considered this effort to be his most important work. Distinctly different from his well-known portraits of distinguished Americans and Europeans and his delicate landscapes, Sargent painted in the style of Italian Renaissance frescos by incorporating the architectural detail of the building into the work.
