Sediment

Dan Walters

This black and white print depicts geometric forms arranged to suggest some kind of mechanical contraption. Two larger circular forms are arranged side-by-side in the center of the composition. A line rest diagonally atop these forms and above the line an assortment of circular and less definite shapes and textures (depicted with cross-hatching and other techniques) are described. The print is imbued with a smoke-like atmosphere as a result of the spitbite and aquatint.

Three Eyes

André Kertész

Square photograph with overall blue/black/white tones, except for full color in the center circle. In the middle there is a sphere stacked on a circle, stacked on a cube. The sphere has the image of an upside down eye, the circle a color image of a blue eye with heavy dark lashes, and the cube has an image of the eye, lid and brow. A pair of eyeglasses are placed in front of the cube so that the eye sits behind the lens. Behind the stacked objects is a large sheet of paper rolled into a conical shape.

Untitled [Zebra] or horse

Nakayama Tadashi

The sweeping stripes of black and white that arch across the body of this galloping creature give the appearance of a zebra, yet the long, flowing mane is characteristic of a horse. A series of circles and crescents over and underlay the horse, and the background uses gold leaf.

Abstract Circles

Fukui Ryonosuke

This print consists of nuetral, muted colors and abstract designs primarily of dots and circles. The print is designed to look as if thin cracks run through the image, and a lady bug is almost imperceptible near the bottom left of the image. The bottom edge of the print has a dark strip running across it.

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.
