Street at Saverne, One of the 'Twelve Etchings from Nature,' or the 'French Set'

James McNeill Whistler

In this nighttime view down a street, buildings along the left-hand side of the street are shown in with sharp recession into space. A solitary figure is seen in the shadows on the left-hand side half way down the street. The sky is darkened with parallel horizontal hatching lines. The only source of light is a lantern on the wall of the right side of the street. Dark shadows fall across the buildings on the left side.

Classical scene (Achilles and Hector?)

Anonymous

This black and white drawing depicts an outdoor classical scene. In the center of the composition a nude male figure donning an ornate helmet and brandishing a sword drags a lifeless classically draped figure before an altar on the left on top of which rests armor, a helmet and drapery. Behind this altar is positioned another draped male figure. A fully draped figure points toward two mourning female figures in the right midground. The paper is squared for transfer.

Portrait of Sir Foster Cunilffe, 3rd Bt. of Acton Park, Wrexham, Denbingshire (1755-1834)

John Hoppner

Full-length portrait of a standing male in a lanscape setting. To the left of the composition stands a pair of birches near the figure; to the right the landscape opens up to a distant expanse of trees and hills. The man, Sir Foster Cunliiffe, stands facing to the right and looking out of the canvas to the left. He holds a bow and quiver of arrows; a black hat with feather lies on the ground at his feet. He is dressed in tan pants and waistcoat with a green frock coat and black boots.

Mr. Garrick in the Character of Richard III, 1764

William Hogarth

A figure in elaborate costume with a fur-lined cloak, ruff collar, and medal leans on a bed or couch, a sword in his left hand and right raised with palm outstretched. He faces the viewer but does not look at the viewer. Overturned at his feet is a suit of armor. He is placed within a military tent and to the left is a distant landscape with other tents and figures gathered around a fire, suggesting this is a nocturnal scene.
