The Lamentation

Hans Baldung Grien

Three grief-striken figures lament over the body of a dead man lying on the ground before them. One of these figures, a robed woman who clasps her hands in agony, leans forward to peer into the face of the dead man, who is rendered with dramatic foreshortening. To the left of this woman sits a long-haired man wiping his eyes while another woman with wild unkempt hair seated next to him raises her arms in abject sorrow. Three nails and a pair of vessels sit in the immediate foreground next to the artist's initials "HGB."

Mantel clock with a priestess and Cupid offering a sacriffice to Venus

Joseph Buzot

The dial of this elaborately decorated clock stands upon a two-tiered base. The lower tier consists of a hollow base made of ebony and adorned with a frieze of gilded bronze scrollwork and palmette motifs. The upper tier, made entirely of gilded bronze, features six fluted pilasters with a decorative panel centered on the front below the dial. This panel is composed of a pair of doves touching beaks before a crossed quiver of arrows and a flaming torch framed by leaves. A woman in long flowing robes stands to the right of the dial and empties a small cup onto a dove held by a winged putto who lies on a rocky projection. Behind the dove burns a fire on a small altar inscribed "Altar of Venus" [Autel à Venus].

Christ Healing the Deaf-Mute

Philippe de Champaigne

This painting depicts a river passing through a wooded landscape as human figures, dwarfed by the towering trees, move along its banks. The majestic landscape dominates the painting, but a group of four men in the right foreground also competes for attention since the bright, saturated primary colors of their robes stand out sharply against the muted tonalities of their surroundings. One of the men, wearing a blue cloak, places his left finger in the mouth of a man kneeling before him and touches the side of his head with his right hand. A third man leans forward to touch the kneeling figure's shoulder while the fourth, in a magnificent red cloak, raises his hands in astonishment.
