John Hoppner

Full-length portrait of a standing male in a lanscape setting. To the left of the composition stands a pair of birches near the figure; to the right the landscape opens up to a distant expanse of trees and hills. The man, Sir Foster Cunliiffe, stands facing to the right and looking out of the canvas to the left. He holds a bow and quiver of arrows; a black hat with feather lies on the ground at his feet. He is dressed in tan pants and waistcoat with a green frock coat and black boots.

Redoubt

Charles Clough

High-gloss abstract expressionist painting of a large Africa-shaped form in red against black ground. Clough’s unique way of applying paint to the canvas results in a highly articulated and densely textured surface. “In place of the brush and other typical painter's tools, Clough uses an instrument he calls the ‘Big Finger,’ a large balloon-like contraption that he invented to spread poured house enamel on masonite into broad gestural constellations.” (Max Henry, “charles clough,” http://www.artnet.com/magazine_pre2000/reviews/henry/henry2-5-99.asp)

Untitled

Cåndido Portinari

An abstract painting done in various shades of grays, browns and greens. The background is painted in thick, unblended horisontal strokes. A group of men, one dressed in blue robes and the rest nude, extend their arms and a white flag, possibly in a sign of surrender or possibly for rescue. All are facing away from the viewer except for one, who is much paler than the others and looks quite emaciated. They appear to be floating on a raft but it is difficult to say if they are on water or land.

La Justice Protégé les Arts

Gilles Demarteau

This crayon-manner engraving printed in sanguine depicts a grouping of figures arranged in a celestial space and positioned against clouds. A large female figure draped in cloth dominates the upper portion of the composition. She holds a set of scales in her left hand. Two female figures, one clothed, one nude, gather below at this figure’s sandaled feet in the center left of the composition. The clothed figure holds a palette and paintbrushes while the nude figure holds a mallet and a sculpted portrait of a man’s face. At the bottom right three male figures, one of whom wrestles a snake, appear to be attacking the female figure holding the palette. A clothed figure donning a helmet protects the figure holding the scales in the upper right.
