James McNeill Whistler<br><em>Fumette, One of the 'Twelve Etchings from Nature,' or the 'French Set'</em><br>1858<br>etching and drypoint | Japan paper<br>Bequest of Margaret Watson Parker<br>1954/1.320
The main figure in this print is a man standing in contraposto pose in a generic outdoor setting. His right hand rests on his hip, a guitar is slung across his back, and a piece of cloth is tied around his head. His gaze meets that of the audience. He stands in the center of the composition. To his left is a seated woman with a naked baby in her lap; a sack lays on the ground next to her bare feet. Behind her, a standing boy leans his head backwards in order to drink from the upturned jug he holds. He is shown in profile. All of the depicted people wear simple, loose-fitting and slightly worn-looking costumes. Three-quarters of the background space is comprised of a cloudy sky; a rocky terrain is suggested in the midddle background.<br />
The print is signed in the plate, lower right corner, "éd. Manet."
Édouard Manet<br><em>Les Gitanos</em><br>1862<br>etching | paper<br>Gift of Jean Paul Slusser<br>1957/2.50
A man laying on his back dominates this landscape-oriented black-and-white lithograph. He is fully dressed. Positioned diagonally across the foreground and depicted using dramatic foreshortening, his face is near the viewer (a mustache is visible, and he wears a hat reminiscent of a kepi, or military hat), while his stiff upturned feet lead the eye towards the ramshackle wall of paving stones that cuts horizontally across the top third of the composition. A pair of feet peeking out of striped trousers jut into the lower right foreground, while stones and possibly a wheel fill the left foreground. Hazy fences and buildings rise in the background empty stretches of street.<br /><br />
The work is signed on the stone (on one of the piled-up paving stones) in the front left foreground: “Manet / 1871”.<br /><br />
