Kokon Jôruri zukushi series: 'Ishidômaru' (Kûkai as a child)

Andô Hiroshige

This print illustrates a scene in a jôruri play based on history. Ishidômaru is the childhood name of a figure better known to history as Kûkai, the early 9th-century founder of the Shingon sect of Buddhism in Japan. In this scene, the child Ishidômaru has come to the remote mountain of Mt. Kôya in search of his father, a warrior who had taken the tonsure. When the two finally met, the father refused to recognize his son. The rejection of family ties was one of the basic tenets of monastic life in Buddhism.

An Unfinished Sketch of Lady Haden

James McNeill Whistler

An older woman is shown seated against an undifferentiated background. She has a dark hat on and is sitting facing towards the right, although her head, tilted on an angle, faces the viewer. Most of the figure is drawn with cursory attention, but the face is very delicately but fully modeled.

Margarita at the Metropolitian Museum (Margarita #1)

Lynn Davis

An interesting composition, rather than a typical portrait shot, the right side is of a man's back, facing the woman and reaching towards her. The woman, wearing a short haircut and a black and white dress looks up to him. Due to the pair's dress, they are possibly at a formal event, also suggested by the pole and velvet rope seen in the bottom left corner.
