MURALS OF HUNTERDON COUNTY
By artist: Paul Jennis
Illustrative time line depicting 300 years of Hunterdon County
The three murals will be created in the style of the triptych painted in oils on 5 foot by 7 foot canvases. Each Mural Panel will be anchored by a strong symbol of that century from which other designs and shapes will be composed around.
The first mural which contains the wheel of the stage coach serves to hang the many portraits of historical figures that contributed to Hunterdon County during the 1700’s including George Washington crossing the Delaware River. Each of the other murals will contain the same design principle to keep the three murals cohesive. The eighteen Hundreds will contain an anchor symbolizing the industrial and agricultural revolution along with significant historical events of that period. The last mural will contain the Court House as the anchor and will cover people and events to present day. The murals will create a beautiful historical time line.
The three canvas panels is 58" wide by 84" high, totalling 174" wide by 84" high. They will be on display in their permanent home at the Main Branch of the County Library Headquarters located at the Hunterdon County Route 12 Complex, 314 State Route 12, Flemington, NJ 08822. www.pauljennis.com
