In the Mountain Fastness

Daniel Huntington

Dark landscape set atop a rocky mountain with sparse vegetation. There is a small boulder in the left foreground space with a dead tree standing beside it; in the right foreground there is what appears to be a small cave. A dead and broken tree lies across the bottom of the picture frame. There are mountains in the distance and a dark stormy sky above with a break in the clouds near the center of the canvas that reveals a sunny blue sky.

Abstract Composition (Abstrakte Komposition)

László Moholy-Nagy

A spare and restrained abstract composition, built up out of layers of mostly translucent basic geometric forms. The grey tones of the background are created with large rectangle shapes. In the upper part of the piece is a light colored circle, with a brighter circle inside it. Both are crossed by an axis of bright, thin orange lines. On the left, the point of a triangle protrudes from the edge. It is covered by a faint gray trapezoidal shape. Three small black semi-circles are also visible: one along the lines inside the circles; the other two along the trapezoidal shape and just beneath the triangle.

Under the Bridges on the Schuylkill

Joseph Pennell

The print displays a scene from a perspective on the water, underneath the bridges. Three bridges can be seen. The first bridge is closer to the viewer, with a pier in the center left of the scene, and the truss barely visible, cutting through the top of the image at an angle. Behind the first bridge, more of the second bridge can be seen, with two piers and an arched truss. The thrid bridge is in the background, right-hand section of the scene. The bridge piers cast six shadows into the rippling water.
