Michiel Van Huysum

Rembrandt van Rijn
The Night Watch
Wealthy Dutch merchants of the 17th century as members of the militia company of Frans Banning Cocq (in the red sash) and Willem van Ruytenburch, his lieutenant, in yellow. It is clear from the careless handling of the muskets (one man's musket has just gone off directly behind the lieutenant's head) and the strange collection of weapons and armor that these are weekend warriors, more occupied with dressing up and parading than any useful civil defense. (1642)
The Syndics of the Clothmakers Guild
A group portrait of the officials of the Clothmakers Guild in a paneled room. Their job was to regulate the quality of cloth sold in Amsterdam. The five men in black with white collars and tall hats are seated at a table covered with a richly colored table rug. One is just rising from his chair. The man behind them without a hat is a servant. All are intently focused on the observer. (Baroque, 1662)
 
Cornelis Van Spaendonck
Basket and Vase of Flowers
Arrangement of poppies, roses, irises, lilacs, and other flowers on a column with a classical design, spilling over into an urn
Bouquet of Flowers with a Bird's Nest
A bunch of cut flowers, their stems loosely wrapped with ribbon, lying on a ledge. The flowers include pink and white roses, a poppy, an orange daisy, lilacs, primroses, forget-me-nots, double hyacinths, and a blue and gold tulip. A finch is standing on the ledge looking at the flowers, and on the other side of the bouquet is a bird's nest containing a speckled egg. A large blue urn with gilded handles is behind the bouquet. (1810)
 
Gerard Van Spaendonck
Still Life Of Flowers In A Basket by an Alabaster Urn on a Marble Pedestal
An elaborate arrangement of flowers spilling out of a shallow basket resting on a carved table. Next to the flowers is a small marble column carved with Greek figures which is being used as a pedestal for an alabaster urn which has mermaid figures as handles. The bouquet includes roses, peonies, poppies, delphiniums, hibiscus, morning glories, primroses, columbines, and other flowers. There are also a couple of butterlies and other insects flitting about it. (1787)
 
Elihu Vedder
The Cup of Death
The angel of death guides a soul. "So when the Angel of the darker Drink/ At last shall find you by the river-brink,/ And offering his Cup, invite your Soul/ Forth to your Lips to quaff - you shall not shrink." - Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam.
 
Diego Rodriguez de Silva y Velazquez
Las Meninas
A portrait of Infanta Margarita Teresa having her portrait painted. The little princess is in the center, with her maids of honor (meninas) hovering around her. Velasquez is to the left, facing his canvas. On the right are a dog and two dwarves. Standing outside the picture are the king and queen, Philip IV and Mariana of Austra (reflected in the mirror at the back of the room). Other attendants are in the background. (Baroque, 1656)
 
Johannes Vermeer
The Kitchen Maid
A servant is pouring milk from an earthenware jug into a bowl on a draped table also holding a blue-and-white pitcher, a basket containing a round loaf of break, and several broken pieces of bread. A window with a broken pane casts light on the kitchen's mostly bare walls. The woman wears a white cap, yellow bodice, red skirt, and a blue apron. There is a footwarmer on the floor behind her. The painting on which this pattern is based is also sometimes known as "The Milkmaid". (1658)

John William Waterhouse
The Lady of Shalott
The Lady of Shalott has seen Lancelot and fallen hopelessly in love. She takes a barge and floats downriver from her tower to Camelot but dies before she reaches it.
All her bright hair streaming down
And all the coverlid was cloth of gold
Drawn to her waist, and she herself in white...

And as the boat-head wound along
The willowy hills and fields among,
They heard her singing her last song,
The Lady of Shalott. - Alfred Lord Tennyson
(Pre-Raphaelite, 1888)

Near gilded organ-pipes ...
slept Saint Cecily;
An angel look'd at her. - Alfred, Lord Tennyson

'I am Half-Sick of Shadows,' said The Lady of Shalott
The Lady of Shalott in a rose-colored gown, seated at her loom, turned slightly away from the mirror which reflects Camelot and a bridal couple.
But in her web she still delights
To weave the mirror's magic sights,
For often thro' the silent nights
A funeral, with plumes and lights
And music, went to Camelot:
Or when the moon was overhead,
Came two young lovers lately wed:
"I am half sick of shadows," said The Lady of Shalott. -- Alfred Lord Tennyson

With those that I saw suffer! a brave vessel
(Who had no doubt some noble creature in her)
Dashed all to pieces! O, the cry did knock
Against my very heart! Poor souls, they perished!
-- William Shakespeare, The Tempest
(Pre-Raphaelite, 1916)
