Nude in a Landscape

Albert Sterner

A framed painting of a nude woman posed as if reclining against rocks in a small stream. The landscape she is in looks like a mountain valley; on either side of the painting are tall cliffs that come together as a river valley in the middle. The sky is dark and full of dark clouds, but in the distance rays of sunlight break through them to illuminate the distant cliffs and river.

Bhu Devi

Artist Unknown, India, Tamil Nadu

Bhudevi stands in a tribhanga pose (with three bends) with her left arm hanging pendant to her side and holding a lotus bud in her right hand. She leans towards the figure of Vishnu in the grouping of three bronzes. She stands on a base consisting of a flat square element topped with a series of five round rings. She wears a decorated lower garment flared out on either side in a pattern. She wears a decorated belt and necklaces, bracelets and armlets, with shoulder loops, earrings and a crown. The jewelry and crown is highlighted with gold paint as is his clothing and the two attributes. She does not wear a band across her breasts, as does Shridevi in groupings with Vishnu and Bhudevi.

Standing Parvati

Artist Unknown India, Tamil Nadu, Pudukottai Workshop

Parvati stands on a tiny base with little feet in a strict unbending stance. The body is elongated with a small waist, the hips billowing out and tapering in a stylized way to the feet. He has broad shoulders, pointy breasts that fall quite low in the chest and has two arms holding a bowl in her right one and a lotus flower in her left. She wears a d simple tight fitting skirt decorated with incised lines and a corded belt that falls down the center of her body with five rows of cords falling from the center and wrapping around her legs creating a fishbone pattern. She wears necklaces with added pendants on her shoulders and her coiffure is tied in a chignon on the right side at the back of her head wearing a headdress that has decorations that cascade down both shoulders. Like the accompanying Shiva figure she has large eyes and what appear to be two sets of eyebrows, but the tikka on her forehead is of a flame shape.

Complete Illustrations of Yoshiwara Parodies of Kabuki: Courtesans of the Matsubaya (Seirô kabuki yatsushiga tsukushi: Matsubaya no uchi)

Kitagawa Utamaro

This triptych shows courtesans in a garden of Yoshiwara under flowering trees. The inscribed names allow us to identify the women as courtesans of the Matsubaya House, centered on the grand courtesan Yoso’oi (in the central triptych, with the dragon-design obi). Flanking her on either side are two shinzô apprentices, and at the right, two kamuro or child attendants.

The courtesans at left interact with a puppet of the actor Ichikawa Danjûrô VI in his role as Sukeroku. The bearded older man in the center is the villain Hige no Ikyû, Sukeroku’s rival for the affections of the courtesan Agemaki.

Fighting in France for Freedom! Are You Helping at Home? - Connecticut State Council of Defense

Artist Unknown

Text: Fighting in France for Freedom!--Are YOU Helping at Home? - Wild and enthusiastic times marked the victory day's celebration all over the country. Every city vied in having celebrations on Monday when hostilities ceased and it was one joyful day in every place in the United States. New York was a pandemonium of joy and everybody knows they celebrate with a vengeance. Photograph shows one instance of the crowds which Mayor Hyland addressed. - THE TRAILS OF "OUR BOYS" WON'T CEASE WITH PEACE. - When the fighting ends, American soldiers will have to be kept in France a long time. Without the excitement of battle they'll be more homesick and restless than ever before. An that's why every man and every woman must contribute to the United War Work Fund. - IS ANYTHING TOO MUCH?
