Jesse James

This image of Missouri’s infamous James Brothers was included in Benton’s mural entitled The Social History of the State of Missouri, which is in the state’s Capitol building. The Missouri House of Representatives commissioned the artist to create the mural on the four walls of the House Lounge, a large meeting room. This particular image depicts the brothers in two different robberies, one of the Chicago and Alton Railroad and another of a small town bank.
