Charles Demuth
I Saw The Figure Five in Gold
"Among the rain and lights I saw the figure five, in gold, on a red firetruck, moving, tense, unheeded, to gong, clangs, siren howls, and wheels rumbling through the dark city." - William Carlos Williams
Modern Conveniences
A red-brick factory shown with cubist-type perspective. There is a fire escape leading to a second-story door, a dark window, a ground-floor door, and an exhaust pipe and various wires. Though ordinary, this type of building produced a positive thing in American culture, modern conveniences. This was painted in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, based on the rear of a building visible from Demuth's home there. (Precisionist, 1921)
 
Herbert Dicksee
Prodigal (Dog)
An alert wire-haired fox terrier, returned from his travels, sits waiting on a stone curb outside a closed door. (English, about 1920)
West Highland Terrier "Footsteps"
A West Highland white terrier sits listening alertly, with a Scottish terrier lying next to him. The Scotty also seems to hear something but doesn't find it worth the trouble of getting up. Both are on a plank floor before a heavy carved sideboard. (English, about 1926)
 
Sir Frank Dicksee
La Belle Dame Sans Merci
A beautiful lady in a pink gown with loose flowing hair garlanded with flowers riding sidesaddle on a knight's charger. The entranced, doomed knight walks beside her as she bends down singing to him.
I set her on my pacing steed,
And nothing else saw all day long,
For sideways would she lean, and sing
A faery's song. - John Keats
See DIC001-D for a detail version showing just the lady and knight. (Pre-Raphaelite, 1902)
La Belle Dame Sans Merci (detail)
A beautiful lady in a pink gown with loose flowing hair garlanded with flowers riding sidesaddle on a knight's charger. The entranced, doomed knight walks beside her as she bends down singing to him.
I set her on my pacing steed,
And nothing else saw all day long,
For sideways would she lean, and sing
A faery's song. - John Keats
This is a detail from the original painting; see DIC001 for the full painting. (Pre-Raphaelite, 1902)
Miranda
Miranda by the sea, dressed in white with a pearl necklace and crown of coral
The Mirror
A young woman draped in rich silks with metallic ornamentation is seated on a fabulous throne of chased silver and mother-of-pearl. She leans on one arm, gazing into a small hand mirror. She seems to look searchingly rather than admiringly, perhaps seeking to reassure herself of her beauty or perhaps she is simply lost in other thoughts. Though her hair is dressed in a style reminiscent of ancient Greece, the ornate fabrics suggest a more recent period. (Pre-Raphaelite, 1896)
Romeo and Juliet
Romeo giving Juliet a farewell kiss on her balcony after their wedding night. She clings to his neck as he straddles the balcony rail, about to descend. The strong rays of the rising sun create sharp contrast between lights and shadows. In a dark inner room, a lamp burns and a pot of Madonna lilies is beginning to drop its petals, but by contrast a passion vine climbs strongly up the columns of the balcony. (Pre-Raphaelite, 1884)
 
John Wood Dodge
Kate Roselie Dodge
A watercolor on ivory of a little girl with golden ringlets and blue eyes looking at a picture book
 
Gustave Dore
The Empyrean
Dante's Beatrice takes her place in the highest heaven and sends the spirit of Saint Bernard to Dante. The two gaze at endless circles of angels worshipping the Queen of Heaven.
In fashion then as of a snow-white rose
Displayed itself to me the saintly host...
But mark the circles to the most remote,
Until thou shalt behold enthroned the Queen
To whom this realm is subject and devoted. - Dante, Paradiso, Canto 31
 
Asher Brown Durand
Kindred Spirits
Artist Thomas Cole and poet William Cullen Bryant standing on a rock outcrop in the Catskill Mountains overlooking the Clove of the Catskills and Kaaterskill Falls. The painting was commissioned to celebrate the friendship of the two men, and the title was inspired by John Keats' "Sonnet to Solitude" which praises the healing aspect of nature:
Yet the sweet converse of an innocent mind,
Those words are images of thoughts refin'd,
Is my soul's a pleasure; and sure it must be
Almost the highest bliss of human-kind,
When to thy haunts two kindred spirits flee.
(Hudson River School, 1849)
The Beeches
Emerging from a dark beech grove, a shepherd and his flock head homeward at sunset
 
Albrecht Durer
A Young Hare
A very detailed and realistic drawing of a young hare in a crouched position on spotted parchment. Each hair and whisker seems to have been painted individually. We also offer possible companions Red Squirrel and The Little Owl in compatible sizes. (German, 1502)
The Little Owl
A watercolor of a small sad-eyed screech owl on antique paper. Its feathers, whiskers, and eyelashes are reproduced in detail. We also offer possible companions Red Squirrel and A Young Hare in compatible sizes, as well as a version of The Little Owl in which the background is not stitched, DUR003-B. (1506)
The Little Owl (without background)
A watercolor of a small screech owl. Its feathers, whiskers, and eyelashes are reproduced in detail. The background is not stitched, and the pattern is designed for ecru fabric. He makes a nice companion to the compatibly-sized A Young Hare. We also offer a version of The Little Owl in which the background is stitched for the full effect of the antique paper, DUR003. (1506)
Iris
A botanic print of a purple and lavender bearded or German iris. Several flowers are open and a bud is beginning to open. The background is not stitched, and the pattern is designed for white fabric. (1503)
Praying Hands
Albrecht Durer's beloved study of two hands pressed together in prayer. Our version is sepia-toned, and all the details of bones and veins showing through the skin are reproduced. The background is not stitched, and the pattern is designed for white fabric. (1508)
 
George Henry Durrie
Winter in the Country: Sleighing on Sunday
New England in the winter on a cold, cloudy day with the sun just struggling through the mist. A couple in a horse-drawn sleigh are crossing a small bridge over an icy stream. Just beyond the road is a yellow farmhouse, barn and other sheds, and behind them are rocky hills. (1858)
Autumn Cider Pressing
A perfect autumn day in the hills of New England. At a small farm, men are operating a horse-drawn cider press. Another man walks alongside an oxcart which has just crossed a rickety old bridge bringing more apples to add to the pile outside the cider shed. Other men are working nearby in a field, perhaps picking up windfall apples. Over the next hill the village can be seen, with a few houses and a white church. (1855)
Haying at Jones Inn
A summer landscape of hay being brought to a country inn. In the distance are low hills; in the foreground, large shade trees. Two children are walking past and dogs, chickens, horses, and a cow are scattered about. Two men are guiding a heavily laden hay wagon through a gap in a fence to the old three-story inn. (1854)
Gathering Wood for Winter
A man and horse leading an oxen-pulled sled filled with logs along a snowy road on a darkening winter afternoon. Two boys with a dog have been helping by gathering a pile of sticks. On one side of the road are craggy trees, large boulders, and a small pond; on the other side is a rail fence bounding a field holding a large brick house and an outbuilding. Behind that are rocky cliffs and a sky filled with wintry clouds. (1855)
Going to Church
A bitterly cold New England winter morning at a small country church in a cove surrounded by low hills. Sunday churchgoers are arriving on foot and in horse-drawn sleighs. Near the church are a brick house, farm buildings, and storage sheds. (1853)
Woodland Glade in Autumn
The boulder-studded New England farming country on a crisp, sunny fall day. The oaks have turned red. Cattle graze in a cove surrounded by hills with the farm buildings at the edges. A man working at the edge of the woods hails another who is gathering remnants of the corn into a large basket in a nearby cornfield. (1855)
Winter in the Country: Getting Ice
Men cutting blocks of ice from a frozen lake and loading them onto a large horse-drawn sled. A dog is lying on a coat that one of the men has laid on the ice. Surrounding the lake are frosty oaks which retain a few leaves, snowy meadows, and low hills can be dimly seen through a winter fog. (1862)
