Etude du tableau de la dame de Charité

Jean Baptiste Raphaël Urbain Massard

This black and white engraving features a portrait of a young woman in a roundel in the upper portion of the print. The young woman’s face is shown in three-quarter profile. Her hair is pulled back and her head is partially covered in a hooded cloak that appears to be bordered with fur. In the lower register of the print there is an illustration framed by a decorative wreath. The illustration features a bedroom scene populated by several figures. A figure lies on the bed on the right of this image while several figures attend to the bed-ridden figure, including a woman whose costume mirrors that of the woman in the roundel above this image. In this image she is accompanied by a child whom she embraces as she gestures toward the figure on the bed.

Jain Tirthankara and a monk with animal forest scene, no. 12 from a Digambara series

Artist Unknown, India, Sirohi School

Two distinct registers divide a page in half. At the top, a yellow-orange colored nude jina sits in lotus position upon a three tiered throne [a patterned blue level at the bottom on feet, with an orange section with gold and red decoration and a green level at the top with gold vertical stripes]. He sits against a red background adorned with a pattern of three white dots. The background takes the shape of an elegant cusped arch with a green and white pattern along its outside with a gold pattern at its sides. To the right of the seated figure a nude Digambara monk sits with his legs folded and one knee up on a less elaborate throne with a lota or pot at the corner and a crossed bookstand to the side holding a book with some devanagari writing on it. He raises his right arm and holds his left to his ear.

Placed under a band of curving yellow stripes, the bottom register represents animals in a landscape. At the bottom are clumps of grass with four stylized mountain forms in blue at the right. Above the mountains stands a tiger facing a family of antelope striding towards him. The family consists of the blue male with his long spiraling horns and a yellow doe below him with a flesh-colored in front of her. Another small yellow fawn takes up the rear. Clumps of light blue and green grasses fill in the background.

Seated Nude

Aristide Maillol

This is a 21cm tall bronze sculpture of a nude female figure seated on a stump-like form with her legs extending out in front of her and crossed at the ankles. She leans the weight of her body on her left arm, as her left hand grasps the edge of the stump. Her right arm is bent and raised, with the back of her hand resting against the left side of her head. She is gazing downward and her arm seems to be shielding her face. Her hair is pulled back and gathered in a knot. The patina is dark brown and the metal surface has a uneven appearance.
