Lincoln Center/Dusk, from "City-Scapes Portfolio"

Fran Bull

This screenprint depicts two sculptures jutting from a pool in the center right of the composition. The pool takes up the bottom half of the print, and shows the reflections from the top half of the scene. Two trees are at the left with a tall building in the background behind them, and a building with large windows takes up the background in the right two-thirds of the composition.

A Walkway by the Cathedral of Beauvais (Une ruelle au pied de la Cathédrale de Beauvais)

Auguste Louis Lepère

The print is a narrow view down a walkway, with buildings rising up on the right and left. The buildings on the right are in shadow, while the buildings on the right are in light. The cathedral in the background is depicted with fainter line work than the rest of the print. In the right foreground is a figure sitting, and other figures walk along the street.

Winter in Weehawken

Henry Reuterdahl

This winter landscape scene is painted in light pastel colors including, white, blue, pink and gray. The artist has used vigorous brushstrokes and the paint has been applied thickly on the canvas. The scenery is not painted in detail but done in an impressionistic manner.

In the foreground, a snow-covered hill slopes downward from the upper right side of the composition to the lower left. There is one tall tree that frames the scene on the far right and several others clustered on the left. In the middleground area, seen through the branches of these trees, there are factories and buildings of a town. Also, there are figures ice skating on a pond, at the far left of the composition. In the far distance, seen over the edge of the slope, is the skyline of a city, the shapes of skyscrapers silhouetted against a cloudy sky.

The Supper Table

John Koch

This painting shows a woman and a boy sitting at a dining table that is set for a meal. The woman, on the right side of the composition, is shown in a profile view and is using a ladle to pour soup into a bowl. The boy, seated in a ladder back chair, is holding a spoon with his hands resting on the table. He is gazing at the soup bowl. Both figures have somber, quiet facial expressions. A table lamp, seen only partially on the far left of the painting, is the single source of light. So, the figures and the table top are brightly lit, but the rest of the setting is very dark. Items on the table such as the plate with melon, the milk bottle, the salt and pepper shakers and the tablecloth, are shown in realistic detail, much like a still- life painting.

Tu Walpi, Arizona

Carl Hoerman

Two figures in the foreground stand with their backs to the viewer, looking toward buildings in the middleground. The buildings are built in the pueblo style, with some arched windows and beams jutting out from the roof. A ladder leans against a building in the far left of the composition. The scene is heavily shadowed, by both the buildings and the figures.

Stiff Box 12

Lucas Samaras

Made of thick steel, this sculpture has two very distinct halves. One on side, the thick sheet of steel gracefully curves around and back on itself, making loops and rounded edges. On the reverse, the steel is angular, jagged, and sharp, jutting into the spaces in the sculpture's interior and the space around the whole. At the very center of the piece, along the implied dividing line between the two sides, is a relatively small box.

The Lord's Prayer, sheet 11 - The Power and the Glory (Das Vaterunser - Und die Kraft und die Herrlichkeit)

Max Pechstein

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.

Mercurius in the Vessel

Concentric lines of bright red alternate with lines of blue and green to create an optical illusion of receeding squares. The juxtaposition of these colors also creates an appearance of intersecting orange lines and hues of purple.
