A square sheet of thin cream colored paper with irregular edges. The paper has a gauzy appearance and a rough surface that includes bits of pulp. On this sheet are two black ovoid forms created by fiber-like black, white and gray lines. These various lines create the appearance of volume, but not substance for the ovoid forms.

Two Figures in a Landscape
1875 – 1938
Bequest of Margaret Watson Parker
This watercolor on brown prepared board is vertically oriented. The piece<br />
is reputedly a view of a Parisian street (perhaps in the 8th arrondissement), and the perspective is as if the viewer is on the fourth floor of an adjacent<br />
building. The upper two-thirds of the piece show a building-lined street,<br />
curving gently to the left. The buildings are about six stories tall, and<br />
additional rooftops are barely visible in the distance. On the ground<br />
floor of the buildings, there are traces of people, shops, and cafés. In<br />
the bottom third of the work, the road dissolves, but forms suggesting a<br />
few people populate the space.

Henry Moore (British (modern))
Seated Figure
Museum Purchase
A man and woman embrace in center; the man appears in a dress coat, the woman in a very large hat. She looks out at the viewer, while the man's head is turned to the left. Near the woman's left elbow is the outline of a suggested figure; another embracing couple is outlined to the right. The smaller figures suggest a perspective and size to the space, only suggested through brief lines and indistinct objects on the left. Artist's sketch from life; Kirchner developed a rapid, stroke-oriented (as opposed to detail-oriented) sketch style when out in the world.
