Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • architecture
  • cityscapes - Refers to creative works that depict settlements that may be considered cities, which are large or important communities with population, status, and internal complexity greater than most towns in the region. For creative works depicting towns, use "townscapes (representations)."
  • 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."
  • figures - Representations of humans, animals, or mythical beasts, in any medium.
  • Netherlandish - Refers in general to cultures that have occupied the same area as the modern nation of the Netherlands in northwestern Europe along the North Sea, as well as the territory extending through medieval Flanders, which is the area of modern Belgium and part of France. For the culture of the modern nation of the Netherlands, prefer "Dutch (culture)," although usage overlaps.
  • nobility - Upper class within the aristocracy, whose titles, property, and privileges are maintained and passed on by heredity. For individual members of the nobility use "nobles (aristocrats)."
  • thrones - Ceremonial chairs or seats occupied by a monarch, prelate, or other high dignitary, especially on state or other special occasions; usually placed upon a dais and covered with a canopy.
