ATLANTA — “I loved his drawing,” said George Beasley. He’s in the lobby of the state Agriculture Department building, across from the state Capitol. Beasley is an admirer of the artist whose works decorate the lobby.
“Quick drawn lines, very fresh.” He’s looking at a painting depicting scientists in a research laboratory. It’s one of seven paintings that have hung in the lobby for half a century, depicting scenes from the history of Georgia agriculture.
