Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • 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."
  • men - Refers to male human beings from young adulthood through old age.
  • portraits - Representations of real individuals that are intended to capture a known or supposed likeness, usually including the face of the person. For representations intended to be anonymous, or of fictional or mythological characters, see "figures (representations)."
  • Swiss - Refers to the culture of the modern nation of Switzerland, or in general to cultures that have occupied the Alpine region of northwestern Europe, north of Italy and west of Austria.
