This early Madonna is unusual in Sano’s prolific career in that it shows not only the graceful linear forms that characterize Sienese painting, but also the powerful effect of Florentine realism in the pliant muscularity of the Child and the sense of observed reality in the head of the Madonna. The Madonna of Humility refers to images of the Virgin seated modestly on the ground (usually, as here, on a cushion), emphasizing her humanity and motherhood, as opposed to the Madonna Enthroned,...

When warned by Jesus that he would deny him three times before the cock crowed—before the dawn—Peter vehemently objected, asserting his fidelity and pledging to die alongside Jesus. However, the prophecy is realized. Peter first denies his status as a disciple to the maidservant who points an accusatory finger at him while guarding the door to the chief priest’s chamber. Later, admitted to the priest’s rooms, where he warms himself by the fire, Peter again rejects the association when...

Eastman Johnson drew his inspiration for this Civil War picture from an incident that reportedly occurred during the Battle of Antietam (1863) in which an injured drummer boy asked a comrade to carry him so that he could continue drumming his unit forward. The emblematic image of a heroic youth literally rising above the chaos of the battlefield resonated deeply with Northern audiences both during and after the war. Johnson’s initial drawing of the subject was exhibited in 1864 to foster...

One of the works exhibited in the Philadelphia Centennial exhibition in 1876, this midcentury painting documented a tearful group of English Puritans departing from their temporary home in Holland aboard the Speedwell , a ship that was to accompany the Mayflower to New England. Robert Weir based the picture on documentary evidence—written accounts, histories, and costume records—to enhance the authenticity of the early memorial to colonial history.

This altarpiece was completed with depictions of just two saints flanking the Madonna, rather than the more customary four. Saint James is shown with a pilgrim’s staff, though not with his other traditional attributes of a hat and seashells. Saint John the Evangelist, a young man with golden hair, carries as his attribute a book, referring to his authorship of the Fourth Gospel and the Book of Revelation. Recent conservation treatment has revealed the refined qualities and vivid colors of the...

These two paintings are from a group of family portraits commissioned by the Brooklyn businessman John Southwick from George Baker, Jr., a prominent portraitist in New York. Baker’s contemporaries credited his success to his early work as a miniature painter, a craft he learned from his father. Such training helped the younger Baker hone his skills at modeling the human figure, creating delicate color effects, and fostering a sense of intimacy in full-scale oil portraits.

Saint James Major was one of Christ's apostles and the patron saint of pilgrims, those devoted and adventurous Christians who made their way over hundreds of miles to the Holy Land or to the chief pilgrimage churches of Europe. Their connection with James arose from the belief that the apostle had traveled across the Mediterranean as far as Spain to found the famous church Santiago (Spanish for Saint James) de Compostela. The seashell, symbolizing that voyage, and the staff are the saint's...

Donato dei Bardi worked in Genoa, a city that had close ties to France in the early fifteenth century and where the artist could familiarize himself with the smooth surfaces and intricate details of Franco-Flemish painting. The refined qualities of hair and fur in the figure of Saint Jerome reflect Donato’s inspiration from Northern painting. Saint Jerome is often shown in a cardinal’s robe and hat to reflect his work for the Church. The open book and the pen refer to the saint’s...

Frère found great success with his depictions of children, in rustic village interiors, engaged in various activities—school lessons, domestic chores, and games with siblings or friends. In both of these images, Frère presents his small subjects sympathetically, adopting their low vantage points. While the young girl diligently sits beside the stove with her ladle at the ready to stir the soup or stew, the boy in the schoolroom sulks after a scolding from his teacher, with the discarded...

Arnold Böcklin was one of many artists lured to Italy to sketch and paint the light-bathed countryside in and around Rome. Unlike Hubert Robert and Pierre Thuillier (whose works are also shown here), who found inspiration in timeworn monuments, the Swiss painter did not seek out famous landmarks but preferred rustic sites seemingly untouched by man. Although Böcklin includes the figure of a bather disrobing in the middle ground, her tiny form primarily underscores the vastness of nature, seen...

In colonial Peru, the ruling Spanish orchestrated the production and dispersal of religious imagery as testimony to the Christian mission of Spanish domination. This long narrative panel—which should be read from right to left—was produced in the Spanish colonial artistic center of Cuzco, Peru, a highland city that remained a stronghold of native Inca culture. While the artists working in Spanish-influenced painting guilds borrowed heavily from works by European artists in the local...
