Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • cityscapes, townscapes, and village scenes
  • docks - In modern casual, common usage, any structures along a body of water intended to support people or their activities, such as boarding a boat or unloading cargo. Examples include piers and wharves. Distinguished from "docks (waterfront spaces)," which are spaces where ships dock.
  • Dutch - Refers to the culture of the modern nation of the Netherlands, or in general to cultures that have occupied the same area in northwestern Europe along the North Sea. It is often used to distinguish the culture of the northern historic Netherlands from "Flemish," which is the culture of the southern Netherlands or Flanders. It may also be used to refer in general to the culture of Germanic or Teutonic peoples; however, this meaning is seldom found in modern texts.
  • etchings - Prints made from an etched printing plate, which is a metal plate on which a design is made by coating the plate with an acid-resistant substance, creating a design in the coating, and then exposing the plate to acid, which etches the plate where the metal is exposed. For designs incised directly into a copper plate using a burin or graver, use "engravings (prints)."
  • figures - Representations of humans, animals, or mythical beasts, in any medium.
  • mills - Refers to buildings designed and fitted with machinery for the purpose of performing some task or making a product, including grinding of grain into flour or running a loom to make fabric. For the machinery itself, independent of the building, use "mills (equipment)."
  • rivers - Bodies of water flowing in direct course or a series of divergents or converging channels.
