John Trumbull's Declaration of Independence is a 12-by-18-foot oil-on-canvas painting in the United States Capitol Rotunda. Created somewhere around 1817, it is an artist’s conception of the presentation of the draft of the Declaration of Independence to Congress. Though this iconic painting is well known, historians doubt such a scene ever occurred on July 4, 1776.
