Shigaraki Ware Flower Vase

Takahashi Rakusai III

The vase uses Shigaraki clay and the wood-firing process. The deformities and imperfections are intentional, and in Iga style. It has a lopsided lip edge at the top, with a deep indentation circling the vase just below it. The texture of this piece is splotchy and ridged, and the colors are earth tones, ranging from tans to dark, forest greens.

A Group of Eight Landscapes on Four Sheets

Franz Edmund Weirotter

Tears on left edge, indicating former binding.

TOP IMAGE. On the bottom right appears a river, with at least three boats moored against her banks. Along the shore, in the central bottom area of the image, is a large groups of figures, potentially a local market area. In the center of the image is a plank bridge with figures carrying bundles, and the bridge (ramp) leads from the center to the top left, where it connects with a large brink palazzo-type structure. In the central background stands a large thatched and planked group of dwellings. A pile of barrels fill the bottom left corner.

BOTTOM IMAGE. A three-arch stone bridge with crossing figures spans the image from center right edge to the bottom left corner. Underneath pass small rapids with rocks. At the bottom right corner is a group of three, perhaps with a fishing pole; the left and right figures kneel, while the central figure stands with pole in hands, pointing up. A cross - perhaps a medieval pilgrimage marker - stands at the left-hand end of the bridge. On the right-hand side behind the bridge are tall stone pediments, perhaps dwellings or fortress-like walls. A distant part of the river and its structures can be seen in the left-hand corner.

The Destruction of Sodom

John Martin

This is a brown ink and wash drawing on a light background that depicts an expansive landscape with three figures in a row in the center area. The foreground shows a rocky, mountainous area with the figures standing on a ledge and square-shaped buildings, or walls, on a rise to the right. One figure is an old man with long white hair and a beard, who is wearing a draped robe and holding a staff. A woman is walking behind him on the path and balancing a vessel on her head. Another woman, behind her, has her arms at her side and looks downward. In the middle and far section of the drawing there is a walled city being destroyed with violent flooding of the city gates and eathquake-like destruction of the buildings. Far down the path a lone woman raises her hands in a gesture of distress. There are turbulent cloud formations in the sky.
