Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • Bohemian - Refers to the culture of the historical region, kingdom, and later administrative district of Bohemia. Often used as a synonym of 'Czech.' Bohemia ceased to be an autonomous administrative district in 1949, and in 1993 formed part of the modern Czech Republic. There is no cultural difference implied in the terms 'Czech' and 'Bohemian,' the distinction is more precisely a chronologic or historical one.
  • cityscapes, townscapes, and village scenes
  • engravings - Prints on paper incorporating impressions of a reverse design created on a printing plate, usually copper, into which the design has been incised (engraved) using burins or gravers. Historically, "engravings" has sometimes been incorrectly used to refer to all prints, regardless of the specific technique. For prints made from designs engraved on a flat wooden block, use "wood cuts"; for prints made from a plate that is etched rather than engraved, use "etchings."
  • landscapes - Creative works, usually two-dimensional, depicting an outdoor scene dominated by the land, hills, fields, sky, trees, fields, rivers or other bodies of water, and other natural elements. Landscapes may include a near point of view in the foreground, but also usually depict a view into the distance. Landscapes may contain architecture or figures, but the primary focus remains the land. When an ocean, sea, or other large body of water dominates the picture, use "seascapes." For actual areas of land rather than depictions, use "landscapes (environments)."
