Cartography and Communities

Four people are gathered around a white table in the foreground. A nude woman on the right holds the head of a man on a gray platter. The man's body is in the bottom right corner of the print with a red trail at the neck. Across from the woman is a man in a red garmet with black and yellow stripes, and a tan cap with a red and blue stripe. Across the table are two other figures and in the background to the right stand two men in blue, much smaller than the figures around the table.

This drawing shows the head of a man. Sketched lines with shading around cheeks and eyes, which are closed, create the visage.  A faintly visible hat is sketched on the head. The drawing is signed (u.r.) "Anton Refregier." It may also say "San Francisco" although the handwriting is not clear.

The Supernatural in Japanese Art

This double-leaf print depicts two camels and accompanying foreign trainers or performers in fringed clothing, with ballooning pants and dark boots.  Some of the performers play instruments, while others tend to the camels.  Above both pages is writing by calligrapher Santô Kyôden describing the camels and their tour of Japan around 1821.
