Maurice de Vlaminck
The River
Houses and their reflections in a calm river with trees, blue sky and clouds in the background
 
Frederick de Wit
Nova Orbis Tabula
A map of the world as it was understood in the 17th century (California is shown as an island; Antarctica is missing) in two large circles with polar views in smaller circles. It is decorated in the corners with figures representing the seasons, signs of the zodiac, and elements. The banner reads "Nova Orbis Tabula in Lucem Edita, A. F. de Wit" (a new map of the world). (1675)
 
John Henry Dearle
Vine
A grape vine laden with clusters of purple grapes and covered with silvery-green leaves. Two small birds perch on the vine and at its base, and rose tulips, golden poppies, and blue blue bachelor buttons. The background is of brocade leaves. Based on a silk-on-silk embroidery by the William Morris studio, our cross stitch version retains the look of embroidery. Vine is also available in a different color scheme which goes with two other tapestries. (After 1896)
Garden of Delight
A beautiful tree with glossy leaves and star-like white flowers against a dark blue millefleur (thousand flowers) background. Several sparrows and a robin are perched in or flying around the tree. The flowers around the tree include carnations, bluebells, primroses, asters, and others. Surrounding the central motif is a lighter border of Jacobean-style flowers and vines. This pattern is based on an embroidered wool portiere designed for the William Morris studio, sometimes known as "The Tree of Life". (1910)
Acanthus
Acanthus leaves and other vines entwined with a variety of flowers in red, orange, yellow, and blue. It is based on an embroidery design by the William Morris studio. The original was stitched in silk on linen and made into a portiere (a curtain hung over a doorway). Our cross stitch version retains the look of embroidery. The background is stitched. (c. 1890)
Pomegranate
A pomegranate tree bearing many pomegranates with the seeds fancifully exposed. It is surrounded by yellow roses, bluebells, and other pink and rose flowers, as well as blue and green leaves. A quail sits at the base of the tree, and another red and blue bird in its branches. There is a second background of brocade leaves. It is based on a silk-on-silk embroidery by the William Morris studio, used as the first panel of a folding screen. We also offer the second panel of the screen, Vine, and the third, Apple. (After 1896)
Apple
A slender apple tree bearing many red apples. It is surrounded by fanciful flowers in orange, pink, yellow, and blue, and blue and green leaves and vines. A small bird sits at the base of the tree. There is a second background of brocade leaves. It is based on a silk-on-silk embroidery by the William Morris studio, used as the third panel of a folding screen. We also offer the first panel of the screen, Pomegranate, and the second, Vine. (After 1896)
Vine
A grape vine with silvery green leaves, bearing many bunches of red and purple grapes. It is surrounded by fanciful flowers in orange, pink, yellow, and blue. Small birds sit at the base of the vine and amid its branches. There is a second background of brocade leaves. It is based on a silk-on-silk embroidery by the William Morris studio, used as the second panel of a folding screen. We also offer the first panel of the screen, Pomegranate, and the third, Apple. Vine is also available in a different color scheme. (After 1896)
Greenery (Rabbits)
A portion of a larger tapestry showing a woodland scene. This detail shows two rabbits running through brambly underbrush in a forest. Other plants are white foxgloves, red-orange flowers (possibly invented), and strawberries. This tapestry was designed for William Morris & Co. Another portion of the whole tapestry is available as a companion piece, Greenery (Fox). (1892)
Greenery (Fox)
A portion of a larger tapestry showing a woodland scene. This detail shows a fox looking back over his shoulder as he heads into the underbrush. The flowers are asters, morning glories, tulips, and bouncing Bet. This tapestry was designed for William Morris & Co. Another portion of the whole tapestry is available as a companion piece, Greenery (Rabbits). (1892)
 
Edgar Degas

Dancers in Pink
Ballet dancers in pink dresses waiting offstage for their performance
The Dancing Class
Ballerinas in white tulle dresses preparing for a class in a large rehearsal room at the Paris Opera with a sanded wood floor. Several large mirrors reflect the dancers practicing at the barre, stretching, and gossiping. An elderly violinist is seated on a piano bench with his back to the grand piano, getting ready to play for the class. His music is standing in his inverted top hat, and the violin case is on the floor nearby. A watering can stands next to the piano for sprinkling the rosin on the floor. This is the very first of all Degas' paintings of ballet dancers. (Impressionist, about 1870)
 
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

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
