The Riva, One of the 'Twelve Etchings,' or the 'First Venice Set'

James McNeill Whistler

A view of a city along the edge of water sweeps from the foreground towards the right in the distance. Along quays, bridges and promenades can be seen groupoings of people walking and in conversation. Boats populate the water's edge: smaller boats in the foreground, larger multi-masted ships in the distance.

Tobias with the Angel Dragging the Fish (The Large Tobias)

Hendrik Goudt

This black and white print shows an outdoor scene with lush leafy trees, open sky and mountains in the far distance. Two figures are walking along a wooded path in the foreground- one is a man with wings wearing robed garments and the other a younger man carrying a single large fish. There is a city shown in the middle distance through the trees and a pasture scene depicted on the right.

A series of buildings and gondolas are seen along the edge of a canal. The emphasis on the dark tile roofs is contrasted with the play of window tracery and balconies along the facades of the building.
