Throughout the embattled environment of the colonial Americas—above and below the equator—portraits served as potent symbols of political and social power. The Brooklyn Museum's strong holdings of Spanish colonial art afford an unusual opportunity to study American colonial portraiture on the broadest possible level. Portraits of the historical kings of the Inca dynasty of Peru—including this eighteenth-century example—were a type that originated in the context of the vying powers of...

Standing amidst a bountiful harvest of fruits in a well-appointed bourgeois interior, the woman pictured here turns from her work to engage an unseen interloper (placed in the position of the viewer) in a playful flirtation. As the title implies, if the interloper tries to kiss her, he will receive a dousing of molasses from the spoon in her hand.

From about 1820, the self-taught artist and Quaker preacher Edward Hicks painted approximately sixty versions of The Peaceable Kingdom in an effort to reconcile his artistic vocation with his ardent faith. The subject is based on verses from the Old Testament Book of Isaiah that describe an Edenic world in which predatory animals (a leopard, lion, and bear) coexist in harmony with meeker creatures (a lamb, kid, and calf) and children. In the background, the earthly realization of this prophecy...

The apostle Thomas, who had received the news but not a visit from the risen Christ, refuses to believe in the reality of the Resurrection. When Christ again appears to the disciples, Thomas is still not convinced and, for confirmation, wants to put his fingers into Christ’s wounds. Jesus invites him to do just that but then reproaches him for his lack of belief. Now kneeling before his master, Thomas hangs his head in shame, as Jesus bares his wounded side and declares to Thomas, as well as...

Pendants presented an ideal narrative device for representations of the Adoration of the Shepherds and the Adoration of the Magi. Painters delighted in juxtaposing the humble shepherds, modestly clad in simple woolens, with the worldly kings, wearing silken fineries and bearing extravagant gifts. Despite these disparities, the pilgrims are united in their reverence before the newborn Christ. Panini invokes a long-standing tradition by placing the manger among classical ruins, signifying the end...

Following the death of the good (or penitent) thief crucified at Golgotha, his soul is taken up to heaven, fulfilling the promise made by Jesus on the cross; as Tissot notes, he is the very first to “reap the benefits of the Redemption of mankind.” With eyes wide open in wonder, the good thief floats upward, supported by six-winged angels who bear perfume censers. Far below lies the earth, its continents and seas clearly discernible. Object metadata can change over time, please check the...

Renowned as one of the leading painters of the Hudson River School of landscape artists, Sanford Gifford was also a talented draftsman, as evidenced by this drawing of Santa Catarina, a centuries-old church built into the cliffs on the eastern shore of Lake Maggiore in northern Italy. He fully exploited the pencil medium, using the point to outline the building's dramatic profile and the surrounding topography, and then making hatchings and rubbings to create the timeworn surfaces of the walls.

Shortly after he turned to landscape subjects in the late 1850s, Martin Johnson Heade began to gravitate to the lowland coastal salt marshes of the American Northeast, making his studies of the sites in the summer and early fall, when the harvesting of grass and hay took place. Finding the horizontal lines and shifting atmosphere of the salt marshes visually appealing, he produced more than a hundred views of them over the course of his career.

Following the scourging, or flagellation, the Roman soldiers clothe Christ in a scarlet cloak, thus mocking his claims to royalty. Tissot reminds his readers of the color’s associations in Jewish tradition, noting that wearing this color marks Jesus as the bearer of humanity’s sins.
