A Group of Eight Landscapes on Four Sheets

Franz Edmund Weirotter

TOP IMAGE: A river scene, with the river and scenery in the bottom 1/3 of image, and the skyfilling the top 2/3rds. A boat with two fisherman near shore in bottom left corner, and nother small pair of fishermen appear on bank in bottom center. To the right is a grove of trees, stretching from bottom right to top right. Distant mountains appear on the bottom left, as the river stretches into the background. An architectural structure - walls with perhaps dwellings on top - stretches along the riverbank on the left.

BOTTOM IMAGE. A river appears in the bottom right corner and streches into the central background. A path tops the left-hand bank, on which a group of three travelers, facing the viewer, walk in the bottom left corner of image. Two carry walking sticks. In the center stands a medieval pilgrimage marker, near whose base is a traveler in large hat with walking stick. Trees line the river on both the right and left sides, and in the left grove is a partially hidden thatched house.

A Group of Eight Landscapes on Four Sheets

Franz Edmund Weirotter

Tears on left edge, indicating former binding.

TOP IMAGE. On the bottom right appears a river, with at least three boats moored against her banks. Along the shore, in the central bottom area of the image, is a large groups of figures, potentially a local market area. In the center of the image is a plank bridge with figures carrying bundles, and the bridge (ramp) leads from the center to the top left, where it connects with a large brink palazzo-type structure. In the central background stands a large thatched and planked group of dwellings. A pile of barrels fill the bottom left corner.

BOTTOM IMAGE. A three-arch stone bridge with crossing figures spans the image from center right edge to the bottom left corner. Underneath pass small rapids with rocks. At the bottom right corner is a group of three, perhaps with a fishing pole; the left and right figures kneel, while the central figure stands with pole in hands, pointing up. A cross - perhaps a medieval pilgrimage marker - stands at the left-hand end of the bridge. On the right-hand side behind the bridge are tall stone pediments, perhaps dwellings or fortress-like walls. A distant part of the river and its structures can be seen in the left-hand corner.

A River Landscape

Jan Brueghel

This gouache and ink drawing on paper is of a river, many people, and sailboats. In the foreground of the right side there is a tall, leafy tree. To the immediate left of the tree is a group of people varying in age. In the right background there are buildings.

The drawing depicts a river with at least a dozen boats of various sizes in the fore- and middle grounds. The ships range in size from a larger boat with a single tall mast, to smaller boats with and without sails, including a small boat in the lower left corner poled by a man standing in the stern that seems to be ferrying a group of people across the river. Many of the boats are docked and are being loaded or unloaded. The spires and rooftops of towns are visible on both riverbanks.

A River Landscape with a Boat Landing below a Bluff

Herman Saftleven, II

This oil painting is horizontally oriented with gray markings. It is surrounded with rose, gold, and mint matting, with a scroll that reads “H. Saftleven”. The actual work depicts a river scene, with a cliff on the shore of a river to the right. On the cliff are buildings, including what looks like the ruins of a castle tower. A tree leans to the right over the edge of the cliff. Ships populate the river, including one at the shoreline.

A Sunset in Ireland

Sir Francis Seymour Haden

A river starts at the bottom of the composition, taking up the foreground, and then winds back into the middle of the composition. A tree on the left bank of the river hangs down over the edge, its leaves almost touching the water. Reflections of the trees and banks can be seen along the edges of the river. In the background is a more heavily wooded area, and some birds can be seen in the sky. One bird is located in the middle of the sky, while a cluster of faintly depicted birds can be seen on the right. The edges of the composition mostly fade into simple hatching and line work, especially along the banks of the river in the bottom corners of the page, and where the trees meet the edges of the page on the left and right.

A Sunset Landscape by a River

John Varley I

A watercolor painting of a sunset scene in a woodland river area. In the foreground the river is tinted orange from the sunset reflection. A man sits in his boat facing the bends of the river that lead to the homes located further back. The winding riverbanks are lined with tall trees. The sky above is cloudy, but through the holes a light-blue sky is visible.

A Visit to the Gallery

Pier Celestino Gilardi

Two women on a settee dressed in elegant 19th century attire, one holding a fan and the other a parasol, while another richly clad woman leans in close beside them, in a lavishly decorated interior setting with ornately carved gilded walls, a large mirror above the settee, inlaid marble floor, and large vases to either side of the settee. In the center of the room is a sculpture of the Medici Venus on a pedestal with her back to the viewer, her reflection evident in the mirror. Between the base of the sculpture and the viewer is an elaborately carved gilt stool covered with rich red fabric. Beside the sculpture, another woman holding a book walks towards the cluster of women.
