Rosa Bonheur
The Horse Fair
Horses being driven or ridden in a circle by wranglers at a country horse fair to show them off to prospective buyers. The horses range from sturdy draft horses with docked tails to shaggy, half-wild horses and half-grown colts, and seem excited and barely under control. The little crowd of observers stands well back - some on a little knoll for a better view. The artist attended a horse fair disguised as a man in order to make her sketches for this painting because women were decidely not welcome at these events. (Realist, 1855)
 
Hieronymus Bosch
The Garden of Earthly Delights (detail)
A scene in Hell. At the top are burning cities, fleeing throngs, and rivers which seem turned to blood. Below are surreal and monstrous people and animals, with animals tormenting and devouring people, and people receiving punishments appropriate to their sins. This is the third panel of a triptych: the first shows Adam and Eve in Eden, the second shows multitudes enjoying sensual pleasures in a garden-like setting, and this third, the consequences of the first two. (Northern Renaissance, 1504)
 
Ambrosius Bosschaert
Bouquet of Flowers in a Vase
A spectacular arrangement of flowers in a beaded glass vase standing in a small corner alcove. One yellow rose lies beside the vase, and perched on it is a red, black, and white butterfly. Also beside the vase is a housefly and two black-and-white seashells. The flowers in the vase include tulips in yellow, variegated red and white and red and yellow, blue iris, yellow-and-orange marigolds, columbine in blue and white, frittillaries, forget-me-nots, lilies of the valley, pink and white roses, narcissus, anemones, hyacinths, and others. Another butterfly and caterpiller are tucked into the bouquet. (Baroque, 1618)
Vase with Flowers
A bouquet of roses, Rembrandt tulips, blue and yellow irises, marigolds, jonquils, grape hyacinths, and blue and white columbines in an ornately molded clear glass vase. The arrangement stands in an arched window alcove, through which is seen a blue sky, misty mountains, and a steeple in the distance. A couple of seashells and a housefly stand on the windowsill also. (Baroque, 1618)
Flowers in a Glass Vase
An arrangement of tulips, roses, jonquils, hyacinths, fritillaries, chrysanthemums, roses, carnations, narcissus, and columbines in a molded dark glass vase. A small moth, caterpillar, and housefly are reminders that life and beauty are transitory. See BOS003-F for a version without the fly. (Baroque, 1614)
Flowers in a Glass Vase (without fly)

Blue Peacock
A proud blue peacock looking over its shoulder at its glorious green and feathery tail with many eyes showing. It is standing on the branch of a tropical tree with orange-pink blossoms against a flowing river of gold.
 
Sandro Botticelli
Madonna del Magnificat
Roundel of the Madonna in a red dress and blue cape trimmed with gold braid holding the infant Jesus on her lap. Two angels hold an ornate golden crown trimmed with gauzy streamers above her head, while another angel holds a book and ink pot out to her, in which she is about to write. The baby has a pomegranite in his hand which is a symbol of the resurrection. The models were actually members of the Piero de'Medici family. (1481-2)
The Birth of Venus
Venus or Aphrodite, the classical goddess of love, was said to have been born of sea foam. Here she is shown being carried to shore on a scallop shell, blown by Zephyr, the god of the west wind and symbol of spiritual passions. Another goddess is carried by Zephyr, clasping him about his waist, perhaps Chloris, whose domain was flowers, suggested by the rain of flowers about them. Venus is greeted on shore by one of the Horae, goddesses of the seasons, who hands her a flowered cloak. (about 1482)
 
William Bouguereau
The Virgin of the Lilies
A cool and serene Virgin Mary wearing a navy blue robe with a gold border, with a formal gold halo behind her head. She is seated on a carved ivory throne holding the baby Jesus, with Easter lilies at her feet. The background is gold with many flowers. (Academic, 1899)
The Story Book
A little girl with tousled blond hair and blue eyes wearing a white nightgown looking up from a story book she is reading. (1877)
Tricoteuse
A young Italian girl with black hair and eyes leaning against a wall in a mountain village knitting a white stocking. She wears a white peasant blouse under a rose-colored shawl, and a full skirt. She is very familiar with her task and does not need to look at the work. Behind her, stone steps lead up the rocky slope to a church tower. (Also known as "The Little Knitter", 1879)
Song of the Angels
The Virgin Mary seated on a stone bench holding a sleeping baby Jesus. Three angels are close by, one playing violin, one the lute, and one a regal (a portable organ). The background is a dim woodland. This work is also known as "La Vierge aux Anges", and a portion showing just the angels has been titled "Angels Playing Violin". (1881)
Cupid and Psyche as Children
Cupid and Psyche as chubby toddlers, each with wings and curly hair. Cupid is holding Psyche in his arms and kissing her cheek, while she turns modestly away and presses her hand to her breast. Also known as L'Amour et Psyche, Enfants. (Academic, 1890)
 
Joanna Boyce
Bird of God
The head of a guardian angel in flight against a cloudy sky. She seems to be a pre-adolescent girl with short red hair and hazel eyes, and wears a white tunic with puffed sleeves and a jeweled band crossing in front.
I would not look up thither past thy head
Because the door opes ...
For I should have thy gracious face instead,
Thou bird of God!. - Robert Browning
(Pre-Raphaelite, 1861)
 
Rosa Brett
The Hay Loft
A tabby cat with a white bib sleeping on a bale of hay in the hayloft of a brick barn. A few scattered bird feathers suggest the cat may have recently finished a meal. A red vest and straw hat have been left next to the cat. (Pre-Raphaelite, 1858)
The Old House at Farleigh
A Tudor-style half-timbered house with a thatched roof standing in its vegetable garden. A massive chimney and a second story which juts out over the first are prominent features. (Pre-Raphaelite, 1862)

Bouquet of Flowers in a Clay Vase
A lush bouquet of irises, tulips, jonquils, hyacinths, lilies, roses, fritillaries, carnations, daffodils, chrysanthemums, and more, in a round clay pot. A ring, coins, and a few odds and ends sit on the table next to it. (Baroque, about 1599)
 
Pieter Bruegel
A Country Wedding
Prosperous peasants at a wedding feast in a barn. The bride, seated before a blue wall hanging looks blissfully content. Servants hold a large tray with bowls of food which a guest is transferring to the table. Another servant is filling pitchers of beer. Bagpipers (one looking wistfully at the food being served) are entertaining the guests who are talking and eating with gusto. (Northern Renaissance, 1566)
The Tower of Babel
A king overseeing construction of the Tower of Babel on the plain of Shinar. After Noah's Flood, all people on earth spoke one language, and decided to build a great tower whose top would reach heaven. Displeased with their pride, God confused their language so they could not understand each other, and scattered them all over the earth. (Northern Renaissance, 1563)
The Harvesters
A ripe field of wheat being harvested. In the foreground, several peasants are having lunch under a pear tree, while others continue cutting and stacking the grain. Three women carry stacks of wheat over their shoulds as they pass along a lane in the wheat. Their village is in the distance, and beyond it an inlet of the sea. (Northern Renaissance, 1565)
 
Kate Elizabeth Bunce
The Keepsake
A medieval princess with her ladies-in-waiting who have just broken the news to her that her lover has died while on a pilgrimage.
Then stepped a damsel to her side
And spoke and needs must weep:
For his sake, lady, if he died
He prayed of thee to keep
This staff and scrip. - D. G. Rossetti
The tokens they offer her include a staff, a rosary, and a pouch hung with cockle shells, the symbol of a pilgrimage to the shrine of Saint James in Spain. (Pre-Raphaelite, 1898-1901)
The Minstrel
"Through the narrow streets of a medieval town the glee-maiden pursues her way, touching her mandolin as she goes, self-absorbed and heedless of the gossiping remarks and the wondering glances of those who have clustered at their doors to see her pass." [Description by artist] (Pre-Raphaelite, 1890)
The Standard Bearer
A serious young warrior with dark curly hair and dark eyes carrying a round shield and a large red flag. He is wearing chain mail under a toga. The background is a vague plain with mountains behind it. (Pre-Raphaelite, 1894)
 
Michelangelo Buonarroti
The Creation of Adam
God gives Adam, reclining on a vaguely-suggested mountainside, the spark of life. Adam holds out his finger to that of God hovering above him. God's swirling robe enfolds several angels, and Eve, not yet embodied, peers curiously over God's shoulder to catch a glimpse of Adam. See BUO001-DB for a chart of just the two hands. (High Renaissance, 1508)
The Creation of Adam (detail without background)
The hand of God touching Adam's to give him life. The background is not stitched. White fabric is recommended. This is a portion of the full painting; see BUO001 for a chart of the complete painting. (High Renaissance, 1508)
