Mead Schaeffer
He Raised a Gull-Like Cry in the Air
An illustration for "Moby Dick" showing Captain Ahab and a sailor standing on the sailing top spying for whales while seagulls swirl around them with a pale sun struggling through the blue sea mist.
...While but two thirds of the way aloft, and while peering ahead through the horizontal vacancy between the main-top-sail and top-gallant-sail, he raised a gull-like cry in the air, "There she blows!--there she blows! A hump like a snow-hill! It is Moby Dick!" -- Herman Melville
(Golden Age of Illustration, 1922)
 
Guillaume Seignac
Virginite
A virginal bride on her wedding day. She is seated on a gilded chair, dressed in a chemise, and she has a band with orange blossoms on it in her reddish hair. She is holding her satin bridal gown and lace veil on her lap, and a sprig of orange blossoms, and gazing pensively over her shoulder. The background is a delicately patterned lavender wallpaper. (Academic, 1900)
 
Georges Seurat
Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte
Parisians enjoying a sunny Sunday in a park on an island in the Seine. Ladies with parasols are strolling with top-hatted gentlemen, families are sitting on blankets on the grass, children and dogs are running about. The river is filled with small sailboats and sculls. The pointillist style involves mixing tiny dots of different colors which are blended by the eye; Seurat believed that this would make the colors more brilliant and vibrant than standard brush strokes. (Post-Impressionist, c. 1885)
 
Ohara Shoson
Heron in the Snow
An egret perching on a branch in a snow-covered tree on a snowy night. The egret's feathers are delicately suggested. The background is not stitched, and this pattern is designed for black fabric. (Mid 1930s)
Birds and Snowy Berry Branches
Two sparrows on snow next to bushes with dark green leaves and red berries
 
Paul Signac
The Red Buoy
A red buoy floating in the harbor at St. Tropez, at that time still a small fishing port. Sunlight glints off the gently rippling water which reflects the sailboats anchored there and the orange buildings facing the waterfront. A crystal-clear blue sky is overhead. (Pointillist, 1895)
 
John Sloan
The City from Greenwich Village
A view from the roof of the artist's Washington Place studio, looking south over lower Sixth Avenue on a winter evening. The distant lights of the great office buildings downtown are seen in the gathering darkness. An elevated train snakes between the buildings and street lights illuminate cars and pedestrians. The triangular building is the Flatiron Building. The tallest building in the distance is the Woolworth building. (Ash Can School, 1922)
 
Jessie Willcox Smith
The Flowers
A young girl sitting amid flowers in an old-fashioned English garden gazing up at the many-colored flowers that tower over her. Through the flowers a bright blue sky filled with white clouds can be seen.
All the names I know from nurse:
Gardener's garters, Shepherd's purse,
Bachelor's buttons, Lady's smock,
And the Lady Hollyhock. - Robert Louis Stevenson, A Child's Garden of Verses
(The Golden Age of Illustration, 1905)
C is for Cat
A little girl in a red dress with matching hair ribbon seated on a striped stool writing Cat on a slate.

The background is a red brick wall with vines growing up it and a gray door. (Golden Age of Illustration)
N is for Needle
A little girl sits stitching at cream-colored fabric with a gold design of spotted stripes. She has curly red hair and is wearing a checked jacket over an orange dress. The background is not stitched, and this pattern is designed for white fabric. (The Golden Age of Illustration)
W is for Wind
A little girl in a red spotted dress stands in a howling wind. Her dress has blown up to show the tops of her stockings and she is covering her ears to shut out the wind. Her pull toy has blown over, and her terrier dog seems to be bracing himself against the wind as well. (The Golden Age of Illustration)
B is for Basket
A little girl holding a basket of red, white, and blue flowers. She is wearing a yellow empire-style dress dotted with white and a big bonnet with a red flower on the brim, and she stands under a weeping willow tree. (About 1910)
Z is for Zephyr
A little girl in a rose-colored dress lies on a hillside at the end of summer. She is surrounded by goldenrod flowers and has picked a bouquet of them, and is holding one up to study. A red butterfly is perched on a nearby flower, and overhead, big puffy clouds roll by.
Z is for Zephyr, a warm breeze blowing by, stirring
soft scents of flowers, chasing clouds 'cross the sky.
    -- Elizabeth Allen Ashton - An Old-Fashioned ABC Book
(About 1910)
V is for Valentine
A small boy in a blue winter cap, coat, and leggings stands on tiptoe to reach a doorbell beside a paneled door. In his other hand is a valentine card.

To tell you I love you, each day more and more.

Outside Dan calls, "Are you done? Come and play!"

Light coming from a window in the ceiling illuminates his books but leaves the lower shelves murky. (1850)
