Christ on the Mount of Olives

Dirck van Baburen

This is a large semi-circular painting (lunette) with several figures arranged to accomodate the shape of the canvas. It is night time, so the scene is enveloped in darkness. In the top center area, there is an angel, surrounded by bright light, who holds out a golden goblet toward a man kneeling before him. This man, with arms outstretched, looks up toward the goblet and the face of the angel. His face is illuminated by the light. He is wearing a bright red robe and a dark blue cloak. In the left foreground, there are three men who are sleeping. Two are sitting on the ground and the third, an elderly man with white hair, is reclining in front of them. They have dark blue and brown cloaks wrapped around them. On the lower right, shown in the far distance, is a group of people walking toward the kneeling figure. This scene is painted in dark tones of brown, green, blue and gray, except for the red robe of the kneeling man and areas on faces, arms and legs which are highlighted by a bright light.

Scene in the Catskills

Thomas Cole

This landscape painting depicts a rocky hillside beneath a blue sky and towering cloud formations. In the foreground area, a stream flows between boulders and cascades over rocks. There is a large square boulder with the roots and stump of a dead tree. The right side of the painting has green vegetation along the edege of the stream and tall green-leafed trees further back on the side of the hill. On the left, beyond the hill, there is a glimpse of far distant mountains. This scene is painted in warm tones of green and brown in a realistic manner. Patches of sunlight highlight areas of the hillside, boulders and the stream.

Battle of the Genji and Heike Forces

Artist Unknown, Japan

This 6-fold screen is a depiction of the Battle of Genji and Heike. In samurai armor, the Heike forces approach by ship from the left, while Genji forces rush to the shore on horseback and on foot—drawing the viewer’s attention to the center of the screens, where their confrontation will finally take place. The Heike forces can be identified by the red banners on their ships, while the Genji clan carries white banners.

The green mountains in this fan painting appear truly vertical and solid. The clouds, too, in spite of their rounded edges appear to be frozen in space. A pine tree bends over the side of the cliff, with its foliage over a traveler in white crossing a bridge below.

The Lord's Prayer, sheet 4 - Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done on Earth, as It Is in Heaven (Das Vaterunser - Dein Reich komme, Dein Wille geschehe, Wie im Himmel, also auch auf Erden)

Max Pechstein

Three male figures dressed in dark clothing, with their backs to the viewer, stand on a shore facing the water as shafts of light break through dark clouds overhead. The figure at the viewer's left raises his hands in exultation. The man in the center stands with head tilted back; the figure at the viewer's righ looks down, as if at his hands. The words of the Lord's Prayer are presented in three lines of text, at the top, middle, and bottom of the composition.

Positioned in the upper center, a large eye sits inside a black triangle from which five arms and hands radiate. Behind the triangle and extending to the viewer's right edge is a rainbow. Below the triangle is a stylized, mask-like face that radiates beams of light rom its eyes. On each side of this large face is a man's face in profile. In the far background, there are mountains and clouds.

Home in the Hills

Thomas Doughty

This landscape painting shows rounded green mountains receding into the distance and soft sunlight streaming through billowy white clouds. In the foreground, painted in tones of dark brown and green, there is a rocky formation and a small waterfall formed by a stream passing over the rocks. One tall tree with lush greenery stands on the far left and a smaller tree frames the scene on the right. In the central part of the painting there is a stone house and pond. A few figures are scattered in this grassy area and someone stands in the open doorway of the house. The background shows a wide valley extending into the distance. Spots of sunlight highlight areas of the landscape such as the waterfall, the house, tree formations and the hillside above the house.
