Georges Rouault (French (culture or style))
Les Réincarnations du Père Ubu. Negress
Gift of Dr. and Mrs. Edgar A. Kahn
An entertainer, shown larger in scale than everyone and everything else in the image, sits in the center of the composition. Tied to the strings he holds in his hand are two monkeys and a goat. The monkeys sit atop poles, and are entertaining the people around. The women hold bell-like objects on strings. Are these meant to be placed on the goat's neck? A white square is shown below the entertainer--probably representing a mattress. The sun's rays are shown in organe on the horizon, outlining the semi-circular brown mound framing the scene taking place in the foreground. Vegetation and greenery are shown on the left and right.

Gift of Lawrence and Carol Zicklin
This broken fragment depicts a now headless goddess or yakshi standing with a much smaller male attendant.  She wears a necklace, bracelets and a girdle consisting of three rows of small round shapes.  She stands with her left hand at her waist and the right hand next to the head of her attendant.  He wears a turban and large earrings and a belt of a single line of round shapes.  They both wear diaphanous lower garments that make them appear nude with both of them with their genitals exposed.  The fragment is broken above the male figure’s knees and below the yakshi’s knees.  <br />
