La Villa Madama

Jean-François Janinet

This etching, in a pale blue, brown and gray color scheme, depicts an outdoor scene with a large Roman style building and several human figures in the foreground. One giant wall, with two large arches, with semi-circular apses behind, crosses the middle section of the composition from left to right. It intersects a massive building that has a series of vaulted chambers. Both structures have crumbling stonework and overgrown vegetation. There are several groups of women in the foreground on both sides of a river. Some are in the water washing laundry and some are standing with wash hanging on lines. There is a small dog on the shore.

The Thames

James McNeill Whistler

This work portrays a view across a river, whose surface is dotted with shipping. Drawn from a very high vantage point, a roadway is seen through a screen of nearly leafless trees at the bottom of the image; in the distance the far bank of the shore is congested with buildings, some towers--particularly a large one to the right of center--and smoke blowing away and to the right from the viewer can be seen.

Under the Bridges on the Schuylkill

Joseph Pennell

The print displays a scene from a perspective on the water, underneath the bridges. Three bridges can be seen. The first bridge is closer to the viewer, with a pier in the center left of the scene, and the truss barely visible, cutting through the top of the image at an angle. Behind the first bridge, more of the second bridge can be seen, with two piers and an arched truss. The thrid bridge is in the background, right-hand section of the scene. The bridge piers cast six shadows into the rippling water.

The Tall Bridge

James McNeill Whistler

Two piers of a bridge soar in the upper half of the image, including the span with pedestrians and the railing at the top of the work. In the foreground, the water and reflections at the foot of the bridge dominate. Between the piers smoke stacks can be seen in the distance.

The Broad Bridge

James McNeill Whistler

A man in a small boat with oars sits in front of a bridge, a pier of which is just behind and to the left of the boat. The viewer is also positioned on the water as only the bottom of the span is visible. Several other piers, also framed and clad with wood to protect against collision are visible on either side of the image. The distant view, seen between the piers, include a suspension bridge to the left of the central pier and the tower of a church or other buildings to the right.

Little London

James McNeill Whistler

A sweeping panorama of a city is visible from an elevated vantage point. Bridges cross a river and boats are evident. The river occupies the right side of the composition and the curving near bank of the river dominates the left side of the work. The cityscape includes many buildings, culimnating in one large dome in the distance. There is evidence that a window ledge exists along the bottom of the image and in the distance there are blustery clouds, indicating a leaden wintery sky.

Mist Clearing Over a Mountain Village, formerly attributed to Hasegawa Nobuharu (Shinshun; later, Tôhaku)

Artist Unknown, Japan

This is a vertical format painting surrounded by green and gold fabric. It is painted in tones of black with some areas of pink and blue color. It depicts a landscape scene with a cluster of small houses nestled in a craggy mountainous area. There is a river that runs through the landscape with two figures crossing a small footbridge. Other figures are shown in the open area of the village. The trees and vegetation are painted with short abbreviated brushstriokes.
