  • Date: 2017
  • Medium: Gelatin silver print
  • Object Dimensions: 16 x 20 in. (40.64 x 50.8 cm)

  • Verbal Description: This is an abstract black-and-white photograph. The image does not bleed to the edges of the paper, instead the print is in the shape of a trapezoid, with a shorter side on the top and two diagonal lines converging on either side. A dark, sketchy series of lines emphasize the left and bottom sides of this shape. A blurry gradient of light gray to black runs down the shape, kind of like a sunset. At the center of this gradient are two wobbly triangles of white.

  • Verbal Description: This is a realistically-painted outdoor patio scene with four white chairs positioned around a matching white table. The patio set is metal and has curved lines like the style popular in the 1950s and '60s. The ground is flat and gray, perhaps concrete. The top third of the composition is filled by what looks to be the first story of a house. While most of the house is cropped out, there’s a door with three steps leading up to it. A pair of windows and a lush planting strip flank both sides of the entryway. It’s daytime and the sun is overhead, slightly to the left, casting a shadow over the façade and creating dark shapes to the right of the patio set. The lighting makes it difficult to decipher the true color of the house since it’s cast in a dark hue, but a gold door frame pops, along with a few orange buds in the planting strip on the far left.

Palouse Pattern I

  • Verbal Description: This abstract print is reminiscent of a landscape, the colors gradate from blue at the top, down to green at the bottom. Two large, mint green triangles jut out just below the center of the print, reaching across from the left side and stopping just before the right. A large, light blue, ribbony shape, akin to rolling hills or mountain tops, moves all the way across the top third of the composition.

Arrival of the Sea Birds

  • Verbal Description: This cartoon-like print is almost monochromatic, with everything in neutral shades of white, tan, and gray. It shows six people dressed in white jackets paddling a canoe towards the right side of the composition. The figures are navigating through icy waters with flocks of birds flying all around. The birds are small and simplistically drawn with a white oval for bellies and gray wings that almost look like heart-shapes. The still, gray water is framed by zigzagged lines of white ice. One large M-shaped ice chunk sits just in front of the back side of the canoe. The canoers all have brown skin and dark hair. They appear to be happy, with thin, upturned lines for mouths, and eyes that are squinted from the large smiles. Describing the canoers moving from left to right: At the very back of the canoe, one person stands up, perched on the back deck, exposing speckled gray pants; the next three people make up a triangular formation, with the two on the closet side seated and paddling, and the back person standing up between them; the next person is standing, lifting the paddle up and to their shoulder, like a shot gun pointed up at the birds; the last person is on the further side of the canoe, paddling. Poking out at the front of the canoe are two silver spears and about three birds that look like they have been freshly caught, with their bloated bellies and feet sticking straight up.

Harbor Seals, Glacier Bay

  • Verbal Description: This color photograph centers two dark brown seals laying on a broken ice field, a dark blue sea barely visible between the cracks. The seals are positioned in a diagonal line, with their tails coming together at the middle of the ice piece they’re floating on. The seal on the left’s body opens towards the upper left corner, but they turn and face back, almost peering at the viewer. The seal on the right stares straight ahead, towards the bottom right corner.

Still Life: Candlestick, Compote and Fruit

  • Date: 1960
  • Medium: Oil on canvas mounted on Masonite
  • Object Dimensions: 29 1/2 x 20 x 3/16 in. (74.93 x 50.8 x 0.48 cm)
  • Credit Line: Museum Purchase, 1960.002
  • Photo Credit: Jueqian Fang
  • Verbal Description: This is a cubist-like still life. The point of view is looking down on to a surface covered by a white tablecloth. The arrangement closest to the viewer has orange fruit in a silver-stemmed serving dish. To the right of this dish, on the table, are three pieces of citron fruit. Two are bright yellow and the middle one is lime green. A tall, brass candle holder with a short white taper stands behind the dish, nearly reaching the top of the canvas. The holder is tiered, and each section is the shape of a hand weight. The background is divided nearly in half by the candle. On the left is a textured white, the right side is a patchy tan. A sharp boomerang shape in teal separates the tablecloth and the background on the right side.
