The Combination that Will Win the War

Adolph Treidler

Text: The Combination that Will Win the War - Every piece of work done in this plant has a direct bearing on the outcome of the war. Our finished product goes to France. The men who face for us weariness, hardships, death, depend upon us. Our work here, fits their work over there, like a cog in a giant machine. Without our product they are helpless. With it they are invincible. They fight with what we make. We are their resource and reliance, the American workman and the American soldier, the combination that will win the war. - Issued By Ordnance Department U.S. Army

Blue and Silver: Morning, Ajaccio

James McNeill Whistler

This watercolor on Japan paper, mounted on board, is vertically oriented. The piece is very dark, with the forms barely visible and very abstract. The upper quarter of the piece is blue, white, and pink (presumably a morning sky). In the next quarter down is what appears to be a body of water reflecting the sky, which a city and hills on the fall side of the shore from the viewer. The lower half the work has abstract figures in brown and cream that appear to be on the shore. Compositionally, there is a zig-zag recession into space. The piece is surrounded by the white border of the board that it is mounted on.

Street Scene, Paris [Rue Laffitte (?) ]

James McNeill Whistler

This watercolor on brown prepared board is vertically oriented. The piece

is reputedly a view of a Parisian street (perhaps in the 8th arrondissement), and the perspective is as if the viewer is on the fourth floor of an adjacent

building. The upper two-thirds of the piece show a building-lined street,

curving gently to the left. The buildings are about six stories tall, and

additional rooftops are barely visible in the distance. On the ground

floor of the buildings, there are traces of people, shops, and cafés. In

the bottom third of the work, the road dissolves, but forms suggesting a

few people populate the space.

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 view of a city along the edge of water sweeps from the foreground towards the right in the distance. Along quays, bridges and promenades can be seen groupoings of people walking and in conversation.

The Dancing Girl

James McNeill Whistler

A woman, nude but for a diaphanous elbow-length drapery and a cap over her hair, stands facing the viewer with her head turned towards the right. The figure's right arm is extended gracefully from the side of her body, hand facing downward. Her left hand is extened at nearly a right angle, holding her drapery out, which further devines the curves of her body. Her weight is on her right leg as the left leg points forward.
