Courtyard in the Sultan's Palace

Jean Joseph Benjamin Constant

This painting shows a scene set in a courtyard with high white walls that is open to the sky. Beyond the wall there is flowering vegetation, tall trees and a tower with a balustrade with keyhole shaped openings. There are two clay pots resting on top of the wall and an oriental style carpet hanging over one side. Within this courtyard, there are three women who are looking at two small leopards that wear metal chains and stand in a keyhole shaped opening of the far right wall. The women, grouped together on the far left side, are wearing 19th century Moroccan dress, including richly embroidered, garments, headscarves and shoes. There is bright sunlight streaming into the room which creates shadows on the walls and floor.

Oka and Walmacho

Victor Higgins

In this painting, done in broad brush strokes, the figures of two women fill the composition. One is seated in profile view and the other, standing behind her, gazes out into the distance. The forms of their bodies are set againist a plain white wall creating a strong outline, especially around the area of their hair and faces. There is also a strong color contrast between the dark black shawl worn by the standing woman and light pink shawl of the seated one. There is an amulet made of bone and feathers hanging on the wall in the upper right corner of the painting.

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.
