W. Jones, Lime-burner, Thames Street, one of the "Sixteen Etchings," or the "Thames Set"

James McNeill Whistler

A man stands within a wooden building, postioned half-way down a deep vista that goes all the way through the building. At the far end of the passageway, a seated figure faces out looking at water and buildings on the opposite shore. The standing man's figure is illuminated by a bright (unseen) overhead light source, such as a skylight, and pairs of ladders are visible on either side of his figure. The foreground of the image consists of dark timbers that frame the view of the passageway and figures; beyond the man, the wooden architecture becomes a jumble of different sloped ceilings and walls, suggesting that this part of the building was constructed at different times or ad hoc.

The Dancing Girl

James McNeill Whistler

A woman, nude but for a diaphanous elbow-length drapery and a cap over her hair, stands facing the viewer with her head turned towards the right. The figure's right arm is extended gracefully from the side of her body, hand facing downward. Her left hand is extened at nearly a right angle, holding her drapery out, which further devines the curves of her body. Her weight is on her right leg as the left leg points forward.
