Two Doorways, One of the 'Twelve Etchings,' or the 'First Venice Set'

James McNeill Whistler

Seen from the water's edge, a canal in the foreground curves to the right and back into space. In the ditant view, buildings with balconies and chimney pots are visible as well as a bridge that is cropped by the curve of the waterway. In the foreground, across the canal, are several arched entryways. A dark waterdoor is open and shows a man on the steps and two shadowy figures behind him framed in the doorway; a lantern hangs overhead. To the right, another arched doorway with a metal grille above faces the canal, but is closed. A small open window on the seond floor can be seen between the arched doors.

The Pool, One of the 'Sixteen Etchings,' or the 'Thames Set'

James McNeill Whistler

A man in a cap sits in a rowboat in the foreground, his chin on his hand looking at the viewer. A number of other boats, all unoccupied, create a barrier between the man and the open expanse of the river that curves towards the left in the distance. The water's edge is congested with wooden buildings and ships, some in dry dock.

Design for an Altar

Ludovico Cardi Da Cigoli

Two kneeling winged figures in niches on the first level of this design flank a tree growing at the top of a small doorway. These elements are contained within a larger structure with pilasters and a coifered ceiling. Above the ceiling are two winged figures holding small branches. Situated directly above the tree on the first level are a coat of arms surmounted by a crown and another, larger crown sits above the architecture.

St. Peter Baptising at Jerusalem

Marten van Heemskerck

A series of architectural spaces unfold, each showing figures engaged in some activity. At right, the largest figure is shown seated looking upwards towards a light source. The same figure, somewhat smaller, walks from right to left towards a small architectural space at the left where the same figure lays a hand on the head of a kneeling woman. Other scenes continue into the distance.

Tu Walpi, Arizona

Carl Hoerman

Two figures in the foreground stand with their backs to the viewer, looking toward buildings in the middleground. The buildings are built in the pueblo style, with some arched windows and beams jutting out from the roof. A ladder leans against a building in the far left of the composition. The scene is heavily shadowed, by both the buildings and the figures.
