Martin Johnson Heade
Passion Flowers and Hummingbirds
Two hummingbirds in the steaming Brazilian jungle. One is perched on a vine of red passion flowers emerging from a patch of mossy vegetation, and the other is hovering nearby. The sun struggles (but fails) to break through the heavy mist. See HEA001-D for a chart of a portion of this painting. (1875-85)
Passion Flowers and Hummingbirds (detail)
Two hummingbirds in the steaming Brazilian jungle. One is perched on a vine of red passion flowers emerging from a patch of mossy vegetation, and the other is hovering nearby. This is a portion of the full painting; see HEA001 for the complete painting. (1875-85)
Heliodore's Woodstar and a Pink Orchid
A tropical hummingbird perched on a large pink Cattleya orchid in a swamp. In the steaming, misty background are hills surrounding a lake and trees festooned with Spanish moss. We also offer a version without the background. (American, about 1875-90)
Heliodore's Woodstar and a Pink Orchid (detail)
A tropical hummingbird perched jauntily on a large pink Cattleya orchid. He seems to be admiring the flower. The background is not stitched, and the pattern is designed for white fabric. We also offer the complete painting with background. (American, about 1875-90)
Giant Magnolias on a Blue Velvet Cloth
Snow-white magnolia flowers, one fully open, one partially open, and a bud with their glossy green leaves rest on a dramatically-lit blue velvet drape. This makes a beautiful companion to A Magnolia on Red Velvet. (About 1890)
A Magnolia on Red Velvet
One perfect creamy-white magnolia blossom snipped from the tree with several glossy green leaves, resting on a lush red velvet cloth. This makes a dramatic companion to Giant Magnolias on a Blue Velvet Cloth (About 1890)
Hummingbird and Apple Blossoms
A ruby-throated hummingbird perched on an apple twig surveying the pink and white blossoms
Still Life with Apple Blossoms in a Nautilus Shell
A spray of apple blossoms in a vase made from a nautilus shell mounted on a silver flower stem with cockle shells as a base. The vase stands on a table covered with a brocade cloth. Nearby is an ivory fan with a tassel, a shallow goblet with a pearl necklace spilling over the sides, and a small box partly covered by a gray velvet curtain with a gold fringe. In one corner is a lace curtain, and the background is red and black wallpaper in a diamond pattern. (American, 1870)
Hummingbird and Two Types of Orchids
A pink and green hummingbird in a tropical forest, perched on a twig near a large Cattleya orchid and a few smaller orchids. A branch festooned with moss frames the scene. In the background, palm trees can be seen dimly through the mist, and the sun is struggling to break through. (About 1890-1904)
 
Ernest Martin Hennings
Riders at Sunset
Blanket-draped Native Americans riding through snowy rabbitbrush as the shadows lengthen over the southwestern mountains
 
Edward Hicks
Peaceable Kingdom (detail)
A scene of children, lambs, cattle, and goats coexisting peacefully with lions, tigers, and bears
Noah's Ark
Noah has been commanded by God to build a great ark and take aboard two of every kind of animal and bird so that they will be saved from the flood which will be sent to wipe out the wickedness of mankind. As the storm clouds gather, a procession of animals boards the ark two by two. There are cattle, horses, donkeys, deer, goats, sheep, pigs, lions, dogs, goats, zebras, giraffes, camels, apes, gazelles, elephants, tigers, rabbits, squirrels, bears, and rhinoceroses. Birds fill the sky and are entering the ark through a window. (1846)
The Cornell Farm
An orderly and prosperous Pennsylvania farm with its neat stone farm house, large barn, freshly painted outbuildings, tidily fenced fields, and filled corn cribs. In the foreground are handsome cattle, horses, sheep, and swine, as farmers discuss which should win the prizes. Cornell commissioned this painting to commemorate his bull winning the prize at the Bucks County Agricultural Society livestock show. (Folk art, 1848)
 
Victor Higgins

Much-eroded western mountains stretching off into the distance
 
Ando Hiroshige
Cat in Window
A white Japanese cat watches a procession through a window with Mt. Fuji in the background
Iris Garden at Horikiri
A woodblock print from the series "One Hundred Famous Views of Edo" (today Tokyo). A few Japanese irises next to a canal dwarf the renowned garden and visitors strolling among the irises. The fields are punctuated by a few trees, and on the horizon are more trees and buildings. (1858)
 
Hans Hoffmann
Red Squirrel
A very life-like red squirrel with tufted ears eating a nut, painted on antique parchment. You can almost feel each hair and whisker. Hoffmann was a great admirer and imitator of Albrect Durer (who died before Hoffmann was born) and his paintings were often mistaken for Durer's (partly because Hoffmann sometimes signed Durer's name to his own work). We also offer possible companions Durer's A Young Hare and The Little Owl in compatible sizes. (1578)
 
Heinrich Hofmann
Figure of Christ
A very familiar and beloved depiction of Jesus Christ. The blazing nimbus about his head illuminates his face. He holds one hand up and gazes directly at the viewer with a gentle but intense expression. (1894)
Christ and the Rich Young Ruler
A rich young ruler came to Jesus to ask how he might gain eternal life. Jesus told him to obey the commandments, and the man replied that he had done so all his life. Jesus said, "You lack one thing; go, sell what you have, and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven." At this, the man's face fell and he went away sadly, for he had great wealth. And Jesus said, "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." (1889)
Christ at 33
A sensitive portrait of Jesus (a detail from Christ and the Rich Young Ruler). (1889)
 
Hokusai
The 'Falling Mist' Waterfall
Men marvelling at a famous waterfall (some looking up from the base, others climbing along its sides) are dwarfed by the huge cascade. See HOK001-S for a smaller version (fewer stitches, less detail) of this pattern, or compare them side by side. (about 1830)
The 'Falling Mist' Waterfall (smaller)
Men marvelling at a famous waterfall (some looking up from the base, others climbing along its sides) are dwarfed by the huge cascade. See HOK001 for a larger version (more stitches, more detail) of this pattern, or compare them side by side. (about 1830)
The Lake at Hakone in Sagami Province
Lake, hills, and trees with Mt. Fuji in the background
Mount Fuji in Clear Weather
A very simple and appealing view of Mount Fuji on a crisp clear day. The blue sky is full of small puffy white clouds. The lower slopes of the mountain, seen from a great distance, are covered with pines, while remnants of the winter's snow remain in the cracks near the summit. This woodblock print, also known as "Red Fuji", is part of Hokusai's series "Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji". (Ukiyo-e, 1831)
The Great Wave Off Kanagawa
Men in long boats dwarfed by an enormous ocean wave with Mt. Fuji in the background
Umezawa Manor in Sagami Province
A scene of rolling hills, soft clouds, blue water, with cranes in the foreground, and more flying away. Behind them all is Mount Fuji. From the series "36 Views of Mount Fuji". (Ukiyo-e, about 1830-2)
Phoenix Glaring in All Directions
A phoenix with his wings open and tail curled around him. The streamer-like feathers have eyes. He seems to be surrounded by sparks. This is one of two paintings that Hokusai did on the ceiling of the festival float of Higashimachi. The other, which we also offer, Dragon, is brightly colored to be the yang to the Phoenix's yin. (ukiyo-e, 1843)
Dragon
A writhing, scaly dragon on a red background surrounded by waves. This is one of two paintings that Hokusai did on the ceiling of the festival float of Higashimachi. The other, which we also offer, Phoenix Glaring in All Directions, is dark colored to be the yin to the Dragon's yang. (ukiyo-e, 1843)
