Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • apples - The fruit of trees in the Malus genus. Domestic apples are usually green, red, or yellow, cultivated in temperate zones worldwide in a multitude of varieties.
  • cottages - A small house, usually of only one story.
  • 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)."
  • French - Refers to the culture of the modern nation of France, or in general to cultures that have occupied the area of the modern nation in western Europe.
  • gardens - Area of ground or open space; usually, but not always, where flowers, shrubs, trees, vegetables, or fruits are grown and cultivated.
  • illustrations - Pictures or diagrams that clarify or provide an example or visualization. They usually accompany a text; the term is most often used to refer to pictures in books or published journal. For works that explore a subject or are preliminary to a separate, more finalized work, use "studies (visual works)." For paintings in manuscripts, use "illuminations" or "miniatures (paintings)."
  • Malus - Genus containing 30 to 50 species of small deciduous trees or shrubs, many of which produce pome (fleshy) fruits, in which the ripened ovary and surrounding tissue both become fleshy and edible. Apple trees are native to the Caspian and Black Sea regions; they were introduced in America by the early settlers. Apple trees are primarily grown commercially for their fruit, but the timber is also used.
  • men - Refers to male human beings from young adulthood through old age.
  • paradise - Place or state of perfect freedom, peace, innocence, and plenty, often referred to both as the original state of humanity and a blissful world to come. Common to many religions and mythologies.
  • prints - Pictorial works produced by transferring images by means of a matrix such as a plate, block, or screen, using any of various printing processes. When emphasizing the individual printed image, use "impressions." Avoid the controversial expression "original prints," except in reference to discussions of the expression's use. If prints are neither "reproductive prints" nor "popular prints," use the simple term "prints." With regard to photographs, prefer "photographic prints"; for types of reproductions of technical drawings and documents, see terms found under "reprographic copies."
  • trees - Woody, perennial plants usually with a single, long, self-supporting stem or trunk, and which grow to a considerable height.
  • women - Refers to female human beings from young adulthood through old age.
