The Singel Bridge at the Paleisstraat in Amsterdam, 19??, Museum of the Netherlands
Breitner often took photographs to prepare his paint-ings, and several such studies are known for this work. The way in which the woman walks straight towards us and the image is cropped strikes one as distinctly photographic. Breitner initially depicted the woman as a maid, but after a negative review, the gallery representing him felt it would be better if he made her into an elegant lady.

Salver, Elias Boudinot, 1748, Art Institute of Chicago: American Art
Elias Boudinot intended to become a minister but his father’s death in 1720 forced the fourteen-year-old to find a way to help support his mother and siblings. He apprenticed for seven years in New York with Simeon Soumaine and eventually made his way to Philadelphia, where he opened a shop. This salver was originally commissioned by Henry (1714–1766) and Mary Aspen (1719–1813) Harrison, who married in 1748. Henry, a merchant and shipowner, became the mayor of Philadelphia in 1762. Albert Pick Jr. Fund Size: 4.2 × 33.7 × 31 cm (1 5/8 × 13 3/8 × 12 3/8 in.); 963.7 g Medium: Silver

May Milton, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, 1895, Cleveland Museum of Art: Prints
Posters grew in popularity after 1881, when many restrictions on their placement were lifted and it became unlawful to remove or destroy them. The first exhibition of posters took place in 1884, and they were soon accepted as a legitimate art form. Lautrec, a gifted draftsman, excelled at designing arresting lithographs. May Milton, one of his boldest compositions, illustrates Lautrec's innovative style based on a dynamic pattern of flat, simplified, brightly colored shapes and dramatic silhouettes. Lautrec, an astute observer of character and physical features, captured the life of a decadent era in his radically concise, vigorous representations. May Milton was an English dancer who appeared at the Moulin Rouge, one of Paris's most popular café-concerts. This poster was made to advertise her tour of the United States. Size: Sheet: 79.5 x 61.5 cm (31 5/16 x 24 3/16 in.) Medium: color lithograph

Landscape in Brazil, 1652, Museum of the Netherlands
This is Post’s largest painting. It features a wide river landscape with a distant sugar plantation, glimpsed as if seen through a ‘window’. A spot-backed puffbird is illusionistically painted as if perched on the frame, and the artist also depicted a grasshopper and an iguana hidden among the exotic Brazilian plants and fruits.
