America: 500 Years


America 500 Years, Discovery, 1989-92, 156 x 47 in, Oil on Canvas

Charting 500 years of American history, from 1492 to 1992, Kanso created the series in commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the discovery of America. The nine mural paintings were completed over three years between 1989 to 1992 and base their subjects on defining events in the Americas over the course of five centuries.
