San Giorgio, One of the 'Twenty-six Etchings,' or the 'Second Venice Set'

James McNeill Whistler

Ships at anchor in a lagoon is the focus of this image. Smaller boats are tied to the quay in the foreground and along the horizon line is a cityscape, leading to a large church at the left, with an impressive facade, dome and bell tower behind. A large ship is moored between the viewer and the church. Much of the foreground is occupied by water without boats, leaving the elements of the composition largely in the middle distance.

Nocturne, from the "Twelve Etchings" or the "First Venice Set"

James McNeill Whistler

This is a nighttime view of a city on water. Along the horizon can be seen numerous buildings and ships. At center left is a three-masted ship at anchor; along the right side are buildings, incuding domes and a tall tower. Throughout the image, there is an importance given to reflections and the nocturnal setting.
