Oriya manuscript (unidentified), folio: A Courtier Visits an Ascetic. (Images and text on both sides; pair with 1985/2.144)

India, Orissa

In this scene, a young prince, seen at right in his bejeweled splendor, offers reverence to an ascetic. The sage, nearly naked and with matted hair, sits on an animal skin. His right hand is in the gesture of exposition, suggesting that he is preaching to his courtly audience.

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.

Suiten kyo (Sutra of Varuna, Deity of the Waters)

Artist Unknown, Japan

This is a long horizontal scroll with several calligraphic inscriptions on the right portion of the paper. On the left are 3 figural scenes. The one closest to the writing shows a male figure wearing a large headdress seated in the lotus position within a circle. Next there is a figure with four arms who stands on the back of a dragon. Two people stand on either side- one a short blue-skinned man who holds a bowl and the other a smaller figure who holds a brush and paper. The third scene shows a male figure, seated in the lotus position, who holds a sword, a wheel, a brush and paper in his four hands.

A River Landscape

Jan Brueghel

This gouache and ink drawing on paper is of a river, many people, and sailboats. In the foreground of the right side there is a tall, leafy tree. To the immediate left of the tree is a group of people varying in age. In the right background there are buildings.

The drawing depicts a river with at least a dozen boats of various sizes in the fore- and middle grounds. The ships range in size from a larger boat with a single tall mast, to smaller boats with and without sails, including a small boat in the lower left corner poled by a man standing in the stern that seems to be ferrying a group of people across the river. Many of the boats are docked and are being loaded or unloaded. The spires and rooftops of towns are visible on both riverbanks.

Crucifixion

Bartolommeo da Brescia

From the height of a cross, a crucified man, wearing a crown of thorns and a loincloth, looms over a dramatic landscape. Three heads with wings appear near the top of the cross, and a skull and crossed bones lay at its base. A vast prospect of distant mountains and a bustling port unfolds through the background.

Cloudy Mountains and Misty Trees, after Dong Yuan

Zha Shibiao (Cha Shih-piao)

This vertical composition consists of tall, thin trees in the foreground, with a lone boatman floating beneath and behind them. As the scene stretches upwars, mountains take up a dominant position in the picture, stretching toward the sky. Above them is calligraphic text.

Dhow Sail, Lamu, Kenya, 1997

Lynn Davis

A large ship sail against a cloud-filled sky in Kenya. The angle from which the photograph was taken creates a triangular shape to the sail. From the top corner to the left edge of the photo is a rope, and on the right side of the sail is a small black figure protruding from behind the cloth, possibly the top of the mast to which the sail is connected.

The Student (L'Etudiante)

Gerome Kamrowski

On a narrow canvas a background of overlapping, rounded segments of blues, grays, and greens suggests rock. These layers build up to warmer colors, and on the surface of the layers are several shapes executed in white line suggestive of cave-painting. The shapes looks like microscopic organisms and are connected by the nerve-like white lines. As a whole, the visual elements are also suggestive of a seated figure, and the white shapes then appear as organs.

Views of Ten Tea Houses: Takanawa

Torii Kiyonaga

In this print, one of a series of ten views of "tea house" districts, Kiyonaga has depicted two women and a child strolling along the shore by the sea wall at Takanawa. A woman at left shields her eyes from the summer sun with her fan, and has her obi tied in front of her. The younger looking companion holding her hand wears a gaily flowered kimono, which has fallen wide open. A child walks with them, gesturing to the side of the print. The front portion of a boat and wall of a town or temple lie behind them.

This is an especially well-preserved print, where even the indigo blue is still visible.

Study of a Male Nude with Floating Drapery

Isaac Claesz van Swanenburg

This study of a male nude set within a niche combines a skilled portrayal of anatomy with a powerful evocation of movement and emotional intensity. Through the carefully rendered arms and swirling draperies the artist expands and animates the space around the figure, who seems to surge forward even as he turns his head back in a gesture of despair.
