Violet Oakley, Gouache Study With Ink on Paper, Color study in gouache of the "Blue Lady" figure, central figure of the Senate Chamber mural: The Manifestation of Enlightenment in International Unity - Prophecy of William Penn. A monumental female figure kneels by a flowing body of water, looking downward with her arms outspread. She wears a long blue dress and a transparent veil, her hair is black. Written below this study in ink: "And he showed me a pure river of the water of life...proceeding out of the throne. And the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the Nations... USA."
