The scene shows a group of buildings with white colored rooftops. Two buildings rise up in the foreground on the right and left. The right building has a red side with vertical lines hashed into it. The left building has two white triangles on its roof. In the middle ground is a smaller building with a green-domed tower rising up the middle of the composition. A small red figure stands on the white ground to the right of this tower. The background shows the large white rooftop of another building, with small dark rooflines of buildings visible behind it.

In this photograph, pedestrians and horse-drawn carriages populate the street in front of a two-storied restaurant façade which adjoins a crenellated stone wall in the middle ground.  
1994/2.28.1
1958/1.63
A church spire rises in the center of the strongly vertical composition, flanked by a group of tall, thin trees on the left, and a pair of the same trees on the right. Gently rounded mountains rise in the background against a soft blue sky. A stretch of bright green grass dominates the foreground of the composition, and church-goers leave the rustic stone church via a tan-colored path in the middleground.
2014/1.613
A winter scene with a steepled church in the center surrounded by other buildings, including a three-story building on the right hand side. A bird perches on top of the steeple. Snow covers the ground and the trees in front of the church are bare. Pinks, whites, browns and blues dominate the palette.
2014/1.615
This highly detailed drawing in a vertical format depicts the interior of a gothic cathedral looking up at the soaring rib-vaulted ceiling. It appears as though every brick and architectural detail is rendered. The image provides a view into the choir and a transept to the right, which is decorated with a very ornate rose window. <br />
2012/2.192
Four onion domes and a tall spire just right of center foreground a view of newly constructed office and apartment buildings. 
2012/2.93
The print is a narrow view down a walkway, with buildings rising up on the right and left. The buildings on the right are in shadow, while the buildings on the right are in light. The cathedral in the background is depicted with fainter line work than the rest of the print. In the right foreground is a figure sitting, and other figures walk along the street.
1970/2.120
