Nydia, the Blind Flower Girl of Pompeii

Randolph Rogers

A white marble statue of a young female figure, leaning forward holding a staff with eyes closed, her left hand held up to her right ear. A flowing, wind-swept garment drapes the figure. On the base to the left of the figure is a broken capital of a Corinthian column lying on its side.

A Visit to the Gallery

Pier Celestino Gilardi

Two women on a settee dressed in elegant 19th century attire, one holding a fan and the other a parasol, while another richly clad woman leans in close beside them, in a lavishly decorated interior setting with ornately carved gilded walls, a large mirror above the settee, inlaid marble floor, and large vases to either side of the settee. In the center of the room is a sculpture of the Medici Venus on a pedestal with her back to the viewer, her reflection evident in the mirror. Between the base of the sculpture and the viewer is an elaborately carved gilt stool covered with rich red fabric. Beside the sculpture, another woman holding a book walks towards the cluster of women.

In the Mountain Fastness

Daniel Huntington

Dark landscape set atop a rocky mountain with sparse vegetation. There is a small boulder in the left foreground space with a dead tree standing beside it; in the right foreground there is what appears to be a small cave. A dead and broken tree lies across the bottom of the picture frame. There are mountains in the distance and a dark stormy sky above with a break in the clouds near the center of the canvas that reveals a sunny blue sky.

Scene in the Catskills

Thomas Cole

This landscape painting depicts a rocky hillside beneath a blue sky and towering cloud formations. In the foreground area, a stream flows between boulders and cascades over rocks. There is a large square boulder with the roots and stump of a dead tree. The right side of the painting has green vegetation along the edege of the stream and tall green-leafed trees further back on the side of the hill. On the left, beyond the hill, there is a glimpse of far distant mountains. This scene is painted in warm tones of green and brown in a realistic manner. Patches of sunlight highlight areas of the hillside, boulders and the stream.

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.
