The Fighting Téméraire - Joseph Mallord William Turner
Questions to arouse interest. What is represented in this picture? Which boat is the Téméraire? What smaller boat is towing it? Why do you think it needs to be towed? What is the time of day? What makes you think so? Is the ship moving or stationary? Why does it float so high in the water?
Joan Of Arc - Jules Bastien-lepage
The story of the picture. Far away among the wild hills of France, in the village of Dom remy, lived Joan of Arc, the Maid of Orleans. Her father was a small farmer, and all her people were working people. Joan's life was not an idle one, for we are told that she was an expert at sewing and spinning, that she tended the sheep and cattle, and rode the horses to and from the watering places.
The Syndics Of The Cloth Hall - Rembrandt Van Rijn
The story of the picture. This picture represents the syndics of the Cloth Merchants' Guild, in a room of their Guild House, busy going over their accounts. In these days of great corporations and societies of all kinds, it is easy for us to understand what a Cloth Merchants' Guild might be.
