This sheet of sketches of barges and boats suggests that they were drawn from life and meant to capture the rich variety of life along a river. Two of the sketches along the bottom of the sheet show large piles of hay or similar materials; two smaller boats in the upper portion of the paper have smaller cargo. Three of these four sketches show the boats with an oarsman in the rear and are seen passing by from the bank or from another boat. At the upper right corner is a sketch of two boats, possibly tied up to a dock as both are seen end-on from the bows.

Groups of figures sit crowded around tables in a dark, smoky interior. In the foreground a man dressed in white hose and a red cap leans on a barrel, his tankard placed at his feet, and looks directly ahead out of the scene. To his left several men cluster around a table to drink and smoke, while other dimly lit figures sit and move about in the background.

Peasants in an Interior
1635 – 1645
Gift of Mrs. Mae B. Smyd, in memory of Dr. Edwin S. Smyd
Groups of men gamble, smoke, and drink in a dark guardroom. In the left foreground a seated man wearing a red sash lights his white clay pipe, while his companion pauses his smoking to listen to a man standing next to him. The red of the smoker's sash is repeated in the flag and fabrics strewn about in the right foreground, which form part of a still-life of weapons, musical instruments, and glinting armor heaped together against the wall. Between these brightly lit foreground vignettes the scene recedes into the darkened interior where a group of five men gather about a table to gamble.

Étude du tableau de la dame de Charité
Gift of Professor Walter M. and Nesta R. Spink
A man sits on a wooden bench, which is angled slightly towards the back left of the composition. He looks off to the side while singing and accompanying himself on an acoustic guitar, with his left foot raised to support the instrument. He wears a costume consisting of a black hat with a white scarf tied around his head underneath, a black jacket over a white shirt, light-colored trousers and simple lace-up shoes. In the lower left corner of the image there is a still-life of a dark-colored jug and several onions, while a smoking cigar lays discarded on the floor underneath the singer's raised foot. The image utilizes strong contrasts of light and shadow.<br />
