Whistle (nsiba)

Artist Unknown, African, Vili Peoples, Congo Republic

Two components make up this vertical whistle. The superstructure is a wooden carving of two birds that face each other, bellies touching, with a small round object between them, so that each is holding it in their beaks. The birds' talons clutch the base of the sculpture. The base has a hole in the center into which the antelope horn is pegged.

Blue-and-green landscape handscroll

Tao Cheng (T'ao Ch'eng)

Among the rolling green mountains, figures in this scroll go about their lives, leading cattle to drink along the riverside and dangling fishing lines over the edge of small boats in hopes of catching something for dinner. Highlights of red pigment add brilliance to a grove of trees near the middle of the scroll. The detail work in the trees is spectacular, with twisted and knotted trunks that seem to refuse to stand upright, but bend against gravity, in some cases revealing networks of tangled roots.

A Scene with a Pair of Lovers and Children Playing by the Waterside

William Etty

A light sketch drawing of a scene full of activity. Towards the center of the piece is a pair of lovers in embrace. All around them are nude figures, identified as children, playing by the water. Some are fishing, others are in a boat, and the remainder are either swimming of reclining by the water's side. Below these figures is a study drawing of a person's profile angled to the left, while above the scene is a more detailed study drawing of a young boy's head.

Jewish Child

Fanny Rabel

A child sits inside a fence of barbed wire upon the bare dirt ground; beyond the fence lies nothing but burnt tree trunks. He is dressed in rags, and his feet are completely bandaged. Eyes sunken and lips pursed, he holds his hands up in a surrender-like state. It is implied by the title that this child is Jewish and is most likely being depicted inside one of the death camps during the Holocaust.

Draped Figure Reclining

James McNeill Whistler

A female figure, dressed in diaphanous green drapery with a purple and green cap over her curly blond hair, holds a fan as she reclines on a cloth-covered couch. Her left leg is up on the couch while her right leg and arm drape over the front of the couch; a patterned pillow seen near her left leg mirrors the colors on the fan. The wall behind them also appears to be draped with fabric. On the wall to the right is a flower-like symbol that is the artist's "butterfly" signature

"Son! Do You Know that Seed Corn Will Grow?" State Council of Defense (Illinois)

John T. McCutcheon

Text: State Council of Defense - (banner in eagle's mouth) State Sovereignty National Union - Cooperating with - The College of Agriculture, University of Illinois. The United States Department of Agriculture. The State Department of Agriculture - Illinois Seed Corn Administration - Advisory Committee - E.D. Funk, Chairman, Bloomington, Ill. H.J. Sconce, Sidell, Ill. John M. Crebs, Carmi, I--. Frank J. Frather, Williamsville, Ill. Chas. Adkins, Springfield, Ill. W.F. Handschin, University of Ill. - Seed Corn Administrator - WM. G. Eckhardt, 120 West Adams Street, Chicago, Ill. - "Son! Do You Know That Your Seed Corn Will Grow?" - Get Your Seed Corn Now - The seed corn situation is the worst in the history of the State. If wheat or oats fail, we can plant corn and grown a paying crop. When corn planting time comes you must have good seed, or fail. Hundreds of farmers have put away corn not a kernel of which will grow. Damp weather in October; immature corn; and early hard freezing has killed it. Test your seed corn. Know it will grow. Help yourself and help each other. Prepare the seed bed well. Don't plant corn too deep. Help yourself--don't depend upon others. - Corn Is Illinois' Greatest Crop - No greater mistake can be made by the farmers of the Corn Belt than to reduce materially the area in corn. The system of farming and the crops that you have proven good and most profitable for the past twenty years are those that should be followed and grown this year. If you are in need of seed corn, or if you have a surplus that might be used to help someone else, consult___________ - Prices For Corn - (price list) - Corn germinating 70-79% will be used only as a last resort, except in case of exceptionally desirable corn.

Interior of a Guardroom

David Teniers the Younger

Groups of men gamble, smoke, and drink in a dark guardroom. In the left foreground a seated man wearing a red sash lights his white clay pipe, while his companion pauses his smoking to listen to a man standing next to him. The red of the smoker's sash is repeated in the flag and fabrics strewn about in the right foreground, which form part of a still-life of weapons, musical instruments, and glinting armor heaped together against the wall. Between these brightly lit foreground vignettes the scene recedes into the darkened interior where a group of five men gather about a table to gamble.
