Long Venice, One of the 'Twenty-six Etchings,' or the 'Second Venice Set'

James McNeill Whistler

A sweeping panorama shows a city and shipping along the water. The left side is more minutely described as large three-story buildings hug the water's edge. Just to the right of center is a large building with several domes. Several small boats and gondolas are visible to left of center. A cloudy and blustery sky occupies the top of the image.

Breton Women Going to the Pardon of Plougastel

Charles Cottet

This painting, done in thick brushstrokes, shows a group of women gathered on the grass in a wooded area. There are six figures, four seated and two standing, and they fill the foreground of the composition. They are grouped in a semi-circle, however, there is no communication or eye contact between the figures. The women are wearing traditional Breton costumes with brightly colored aprons, caps and sashes. They have bright white collars and caps with purple, burgundy and green ribbons.
