Cattle skull, Badlands, South Dakota
Gift of Thomas Wilson '79 and Jill Garling '80
This engraving is horizontally oriented. The length of a cow (with its head to the left and its tail to the right) is the focal point, taking up about a third of the image. At the cow&rsquo;s head on the left, a barefooted man with a hat leans on a pole and rests his arm on a tree trunk. Behind the man is another cow with horns and he is standing in front of a building. The ground is rocky and a fence made of thin tree trunks runs along the background. At the cow&rsquo;s tail on the right, is a peasant woman with bare feet. Her head is covered with a cloth and she labors to carry a heavy wooden milk bucket. Several trees and another cow are behind her. A small plaque on the ground in the foreground contains an inscription.

The upper half of the picture is the sky, Corot's signature mark in the upper right corner.  There are two trees with little foliage extending from the lower left corner up to the top of the image.  To the right of those trees is the boat with a hunched figure sitting on the left side. A cow is on the other side of the boat, facing the right side of the image. There are trees with a lot of foliage in the center of the right half of the image just above the cow. There is grass all along the bottom edge of the image.

Ville d'Avray: Boatman's Pond (Evening) [Ville d'Avray: L'Etang du Batelier (Effet du Soir)]
Gift of Carl Fredric Clarke
In an ominous landscape a crowd of nude men, women and children, their bodies silhouetted against the descending gloom, struggle frantically to escape rising floodwaters. The figures gesture wildly and strenuously twist their long athletic bodies into a seemingly infinite variety of contortions as they clamber up the last hilltops and trees. A city stands on a hill and appears through the trees in the background.

Indian (Indian (South Asian))
1700 – 1850
Gift from the collection of Robert B. Jacobs
The low horizon used in this landscape painting creates a sense of expansive sky and flat terrain, which is divided equally between river and land. Figures and animals engage in variety of activities on the riverbank and in boats, including fishing and ferrying cargo and animals. Silhouetted against the vast sky stands a fortress on a spur of land with an orange flag flying from its tower. The opposite bank is visible in the distance as a dark broken line across the shining stretch of water.
