Breton Women Going to the Pardon of Plougastel

Charles Cottet

This painting, done in thick brushstrokes, shows a group of women gathered on the grass in a wooded area. There are six figures, four seated and two standing, and they fill the foreground of the composition. They are grouped in a semi-circle, however, there is no communication or eye contact between the figures. The women are wearing traditional Breton costumes with brightly colored aprons, caps and sashes. They have bright white collars and caps with purple, burgundy and green ribbons.

Two Inspiring Cablegrams

William George Krieghoff

Text: 2 Inspiring Cablegrams - Chairman Edward N. Hurley cables: "…We want you and the boys in the trenches to know that the men in the yards are going to limit to provide in record-braking time the ships that will carry more Men, Food and Munitions to the intrepid American Expeditionary Forces." - General Pershing replies: " The launching of nearly 100 ships on the Fourth of July is the most inspiring news that has come to us. All ranks of the Army in France send their congratulations and heart-felt thanks to their patriotic brothers in the shipyards at home. No more defiant answer could be given to the enemy's challenge. With such backing we cannot fail to win. All hail, American Ship-Builders!" - United States Shipping Board, Emergency Fleet Corporation

Adolescence

Alessandro Mastro-Valerio

This scene of two nude women depicts one woman in the center of scene on a circular rug, leaning against a couch or bed where the other woman lays. The center woman is shown with her torso straight on towards the viewer, her knees bent and pointing to the left, and her head tilted down and to the right. The woman laying down is shown with her head closest to the viewer, so we can only see the top of her head, her shoulders, her chest, and her hip. The background is mostly shadow, with small bits of light showing through some drapes.
