A vision of 2000, drawn by Jean-Marc Côté and other French artists to be used on cigar boxes and postcards, for the 1900 World Exhibition in Paris. It’s actually kind of sad how little of this we have. Who wouldn’t want to travel by whale?

A Young Woman Tuning a Lute. Nicolaes Berchem (Dutch, 1620-1683). Oil on canvas.
This genre-like portrait is rather unusual in Berchem’s oeuvre: there are only four, including the present one. Berchem’s preference was pastoral landscapes in the Italianate manner.
