The Beggars, One of the 'Twelve Etchings,' or the 'First Venice Set'

James McNeill Whistler

A deep covered passageway dominates the composition. At the near end of the passage, to the right side stand a woman and young girl, both with heads covered and looking at the viewer. Looking down the passageway, light catches the timbered ceiling and figures can be seen walking at the far end, silhouetted against the bright light in the square or street beyond. A lantern hangs above the entrance at the near end of the passage.

The Doorway, One of the "Twelve Etchings," or the "First Venice Set"

James McNeill Whistler

A large ornate waterdoor faces onto a canal. On the threshold near the water, a woman bends down towards the surface of the canal. Behind the doorway stands another figure in the shadows and beyond is another opening to a small square or open-air workspace. The Doorway consists of a large lunette shaped transom light over the door and the portal is flanked on either side by large arched windows. The glazing is all fitted into a fine network of mullions in either square on diamond patterns. The door and windows are each framed by carved pilasters and engaged corinthian capitals. Below the windows are bands of rosettes and other carved ornament that extends to the water level.

A sweeping panorama shows a city and shipping along the water. The left side is more minutely described as large three-story buildings hug the water's edge. Just to the right of center is a large building with several domes. Several small boats and gondolas are visible to left of center. A cloudy and blustery sky occupies the top of the image.

James McNeill Whistler

A large, two-story arched passageway leads from the foreground to a distant street. Viewed from the water of the canal that runs across the bottom of the image, the image concentrates on the dark barrel vault of the passage, the boats that occupy the foreground between the water and the walls of the building, and windows and balconies that animate the wall on either side of the archway.

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.

A nighttime view of canals in Venice. Walls of buildings at rough right angles to one another, connected by a footbridge in the distance, are lit to reveal massings of the architecture--balconies, doorways, windows. There are not people apparent; the sky and water are both very dark.
