The Alling Children
A portrait of the four oldest children of Stephen Ball Alling. From left to right, they are Stephen, Mary, Cornelia, and Emma. The children are dressed in empire-waisted dresses and pantalettes holding, variously, a hammer, a cat, a lace handkerchief, and a book. This portrait was probably painted shortly after the boy's death, indicated by his separation from his sisters, the color of his dress, and the pool of light around him. Posthumous portraits of children were common at the time, and small boys did often wear dresses. (About 1839)
 
Jacob Eichholtz
The Ragan Sisters
Two little girls in matching white dresses and matching flowered bonnets pose for their portrait with their arms about each other. They are framed by a column, a deep red velvet curtain, and behind them a wall and lowering sky. See EIC001-S for a smaller version (fewer stitches, slightly less detail) of this pattern, or compare them side by side. (1820)
The Ragan Sisters (smaller)

They are framed by a column, a deep red velvet curtain, and behind them a wall and lowering sky. See EIC001 for a larger version (more stitches, more detail) of this pattern, or compare them side by side. (1820)
 
El Greco
View of Toledo
The old city of Toledo viewed from a distant hilltop. The stone walls of the city run up and down hill, surrounding the main city on a hilltop. Outside the walls in the foreground are green pastures and trees, with a stone bridge crossing a river. Above all are threatening stormclouds which cast strange shadows on the earth. (c. 1604-1614)
 
Eric Enstrom
Grace
A bearded old man wearing a plaid wool shirt bowing his head in prayer over a simple meal. The table holds a loaf of bread and knife, a bowl of gruel, and a large book and spectacles. Light from a window out of view illuminates his face and hands. This pattern is based on a hand-colored black-and-white photo of an old peddlar who visited the photographer's studio selling boot scrapers. (1918)
 
De Scott Evans
A New Variety, Try One
A still life of almonds in the shell in a display case cheaply made of soft wood, chipped around the edges, with a broken glass cover. A note slipped under the glass says "A New Variety, Try One". (1890)

A Young Girl Reading
A young woman in a yellow gown with long full sleeves, white cuffs, and a white ruff leaning on a large plump cushion. Her hair is pinned up with a violet ribbon matching ones on the bodice of her dress and on her collar. Her elbow rests casually on a rail and she is reading a small book. We also offer a detail version without stitched background. (Rococo, 1776)
A Young Girl Reading (detail)
A young woman in a yellow gown with long full sleeves, white cuffs, and a white ruff leaning on a large plump cushion. Her hair is pinned up with a violet ribbon matching ones on the bodice of her dress and on her collar. Her elbow rests casually on a rail and she is reading a small book. This is a portion of the full painting, and the background is not stitched. Use medium-brown fabric such as natural linen. We also offer the full painting. (Rococo, 1776)
The Swing
A saucy girl on a swing hung from a large tree in a garden. She is wearing a pink gown and hat and her skirt is flying up to her knees. A young man crouched behind a bush is looking up her dress and laughing, as she kicks her shoe at him. The swing is being pulled by a priest who seems to be enjoying the situation, and even the statues appear to be studying the action. See FRA002-D for a chart of a portion of this painting. (Rococo, 1765)

Sunflower Seen from the Back
A botanical print of a sunflower viewed, unusually, from the back, showing the details of the calyx (sepals), the undersides of a few leaves, and the sturdy junction of stem and head. The yellow petals form a fringe around the green calyx. This is the companion to Froeschl's Sunflower, which we also offer. (about 1600)
Sunflower
A botanical print of a sunflower. The yellow petals form a fringe around the brown disk in which the tiny disk flowers are starting to show yellow and green. This is the companion to Froeschl's Sunflower Seen from the Back, which we also offer. (about 1600)
 
Clarence Alphonse Gagnon
The Old Mill, Indian Summer
An old mill standing in a field. Before it is the millpond reflecting green and dotted with waterlilies, with a rail fence bordering it. Behind it are trees blazing with peak fall colors. A couple more houses stand on a ridge behind the mill. (Canadian, 1919)
 
Thomas Gainsborough
The Blue Boy
A young Cavalier in a blue satin suit with a lace-trimmed collar and shoes with matching bows. His coat is draped over one arm and in the other hand he holds his plumed hat. He stands on a brushy hillside against a vaguely stormy background. We also offer his traditional companion, Pinkie, by Sir Thomas Lawrence, in a compatible size. (Rococo/Romantic, about 1770)
 
Paul Gauguin

Winter Landscape, Effect of Snow
Houses and trees dimly seen through falling snow in the eery winter light. Also known as Snow at Vaugirard, II. In the foreground is a row of small trees. Behind them is the roof of a house built downhill from the trees, and more houses behind it on rising land. (Post-Impressionist, 1879)
 
Charles Allan Gilbert
All is Vanity
A charcoal drawing of an elegant lady seated at her vanity admiring her reflection in a large circular mirror. The room is in darkness but candles on the dressing table light up the mirror. The lady, mirror, and bottles on the table form the illusion of a large grinning skull (which also provides a verbal play on the title). (1892)
 
Warwick Goble
Three Spirits Mad with Joy
Three little fairies with colored wings wearing gauzy gowns leaping onto and swinging from a spray of flowers.
Himself beheld three spirits mad with joy
Come dashing down on a tall wayside flower
That shook beneath them, as the thistle shakes
When three gray linnets wrangle for the seed
-- Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Guinevere
This piece is solidly stitched. (Golden Age of Illustration, 1920)
 
John William Godward
A Congenial Task
A beautiful woman in Classical dress seated on a leopard skin braiding her long, dark brown hair. Her clothes are deep red, blue, and green. She leans on a marble wall with a base of different marble, next to a granite column on a golden pedestal. (Neoclassical, 1915)
A Red Rose
A beautiful woman in a dark red costume in the style of ancient Greece gazing pensively at a deep red rose. She has a pair of scissors in the other hand. On a marble-topped stand is a bowl of other roses in various colors. The background is a wall of marble, granite, and slate. (1920, Neoclassical)
