  1. Repoussé Disk Brooch

    From Niederbreisig (Rheinland Pfalz, Germany)

  2. Afternoon dress

    Nineteenth-century gauze dresses incorporate the romance of the buta motif in fabrics that bear no relation to the original Kashmiri wools. In the West, the paisley-wool ligature becomes dissociated, chiefly because of paisley's extraordinary popularity: it becomes a design motif for all seasons. By the twentieth century, paisley in the West comes to be associated was much with silk and cotton -- notably in home furnishings and men's neckties -- as with wool.

  3. Cloisonné Disk Brooch

    From Herpes, France (com. Courbillac, dép. Charente)

  4. Belt Mount

    Found near Vrap, district of Pekinje, Albania in 1902

  5. Fur Traders Descending the Missouri

    Bingham, George Caleb
    On June 4, 1845, Bingham returned from a winter stay in central Missouri to St. Louis, bringing with him several paintings and many sketches. This apparently was one of the pictures that he brought with him, and he sent it later that year for sale to the American Art-Union. It was first called 'French-Trader-Half breed Son,' but the Art-Union gave it the title by which it is now known. Bingham, whose earliest efforts were portraits, produced a masterpiece of genre painting with little precedent in his oeuvre. The strikingly spare, geometric composition and luminist light recall the paintings of William...

  7. The One Who Understands

    Klee, Paul

  8. Repoussé Disk Brooch

    From Marchélepot, France (com. Nésle, dép. Somme)

  9. Dress

    As art historian Marco Livingstone has stressed, Pop Art was never a circumscribed movement with membership and manifestos. Rather, it was a sensibility emergent in the 1950s and rampant in the 1960s. Andy Warhol (who began his career as a fashion illustrator) had been painting Campbell's soup cans since 1962. Such advertising icons, along with cartoons and billboards, yielded a synthesis of word and image, of art and the everyday. Fashion quickly embraced the spirit of Pop, playing an important role in its dissemination. The paper dresses of 1966 - 67 were throwaways, open to advertising and the commercial.

  10. Relief

    Pesquera, Diego de
    This panel came from a retable made for the parish church of Los Ojíjares, near Granada, which was dedicated to Saint Anne, the mother of the Virgin. Saint Anne and her husband, Joaquim, prominently featured in the relief, were honored in Catholic devotion as emblems of the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin, a cult that was especially popular in Spain. The panel remained in place from its creation in the mid-sixteenth century until it was sold in 1881. A record of its commission in 1567 establishes that Diego de Pesquera carved the relief; the painting and gilding were entrusted to...

  11. Group of four vases

    These four vases, which are said to have been found together, are best paralleled by pieces found by Heinrich Schliemann at Troy in a stratigraphic level know as Troy II. The wealth of jewelry and objects from the latest phase, Troy IIg, led Schliemann to believe that he had found the city described by Homer. In reality, this material is datable to about a thousand years before the Trojan War.

  12. Evening dress

    In the era of exposure of the back, Valentina ingeniously created a covered-up look with a single surprise - an adroit erotic charge at center front. Using slicing and suturing at that spot, Valentina gave drama to a dress that is otherwise monastic.

  13. Finger Ring with Inscription

  14. Pair of Earrings

    Said to be from Olbia (Ochakov, Ukraine)

  15. Illustrated detached folio

    As part of his policy of reconciliation between Muslims and Hindus, Emperor Akbar (r. 1556-1605) had the Hindu classics translated into the Persian language of the court and illustrated by his court artists. This painting is one of the finest results of his plans. The god Krishna protects the people of Braj against the destructive rain sent by the god Indra.

  16. 'Simonetti' Carpet

    This majestic weaving, named for a former owner, is one of the most famous of all Mamluk carpets. It has five medallions instead of the more customary one or three and a slightly brighter, more varied palette than is usual for its type. Mamluk carpets are surprisingly rich in appearance considering the relatively coarse weave and limited color range. The overall effect is that of a shimmering mosaic.

  17. Buckle

    From Niederbreisig (Rheinland Pfalz, Germany)

  18. Bedroom from Sagredo Palace, Venice

    Stazio, Abbondio; Mazzetti, Carpoforo; Diziani, Gasparo
    In design and workmanship, this bedroom, consisting of an antechamber with a bed alcove, is one of the finest of its period. The decoration is in stucco and carved wood. In the antechamber, fluted Corinthian pilasters support an entablature out of which fly amorini bearing garlands of flowers. Other amorini bear the gilded frame of a painting by Gasparo Diziani, depicting dawn triumphant over night. Above the entry to the alcove seven amorini frolic, holding a shield with the monogram of Zaccaria Sagredo. A paneled wood dado with a red-and-white marble base runs around the room. The unornamented portions of...

  19. The Grand Canal, Venice

    Turner, Joseph Mallord William
    Exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1835, this painting is a product of Turner's visit to Venice two years earlier. Although it is topographically accurate, the work combines two viewpoints: the bank of the canal at the left is seen from the steps of Santa Maria della Salute and that on the right, from the Campo del Traghetto di Santa Maria del Giglio on the opposite side.

  20. Dish

    This exceptional dish, with its depiction of a kneeling elephant surrounded by abstract cloud formations, must be included among the dozen or two finest known early Vietnamese blue-and-white porcelain dishes and is therefore a major addition to the Museum's small but choice collection of these wares. The refined and sophisticated drawing of the charming and delightful elephant and the excellent control of the underglaze cobalt blue sets it apart from most of the known corpus of important fifteenth- and sixteenth-century porcelains. The technique of manufacture, shape of the dish, and general composition of design are clearly based on early Ming...
