  • Abraham Lincoln Abraham Lincoln
    Location: Northwest stairway
    Catalog # 358
    Notes: This photograph, bearing a facsimile of his signature, shows Lincoln, "attorney and counselor-at-law in Springfield, Illinois." His resolute attitude, distinct in the well-knit lines of the folded arms, and the strong character, delineated in the sympathetic expression, prophesy the Lincoln-to-be during the Civil War and his presidency. From the Harry MacNeill Bland Collection.

    Location: room 227
    Catalog # 37
    Notes: Original at Wellesley College, Wellesley, Massachusetts. Daniel C. French, "the sculptor of memorials", worked in the formative period of American sculpture. The contagion of personality is admirably expressed in the dignified, graceful lines of this memorial. Alice Freeman Palmer, a president of Wellesley College, is represented as pointing the higher way of life to a young student.

     

    amiens cathedral Amiens Cathedral, France
    Location: Hall from room 047
    Catalog # 150
    Notes: Donated by the Class of June, 1912. This cathedral was built in conformity to the mother-type, as found at Chartres. Here are the three arched entrances; the short tower; the rose-windows; the many little spires. A multitude of statues depicts Biblical personages and situations, causing this cathedral to be called a Bible, "the Bible of Amiens", in sculptured stone. Only in detail and ornament do Chartres and Amiens differ. As Amiens is unfinished, it seems squat, in contrast to Chartres.

     

    arch of titus Arch of Titus, Rome
    Location: room 117
    Catalog # 152
    Notes: Strength, simplicity, and excellence of proportion make this monument one of the outstanding arches in the imperial city. Its decoration, commemorating the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70, confers peculiar interest upon the arch. The reliefs have importance for the history of art on account of their showing the differences between Greek and Roman sculpture.

    castle of chillon Castle of Chillon
    Location: room 127
    Catalog # 156
    Notes: Lord Byron's spirited poem, The Prisoner of Chillon, made famous this castle and fortress on Lake Geneva, Switzerland. It was built by the rulers of Savoy in the thirteenth century.

     

    Cathedral of Milan Cathedral of Milan, Italy
    Location: Stairway to room 231
    Catalog # 165
    Notes: Donated by the Class of June , 1912. This magnificent, superb church is one of the world's wonders. Constructed of white marble, adorned with seven thousand statues, crowned with fifty-two pillars enriched with capitals of varying design, the whole is unique as if, architecturally, it "had no other kin". Napoleon characterized it as "lacework in stone". The style, except that of the facade, which was begun in the Greek style, is Gothic.

     

    cathedral of nortre dame Cathedral of Notre Dame
    Location: room 027
    Catalog # 166
    Notes: Donated by the Class of June, 1912. Gothic (1163-1264). A majestic temple, Notre Dame in contrast with the rich detail of Amiens Cathedral presents almost classic balance of line and large spaces, unadorned, in walls and in buttresses. Victor Hugo made it famous in literature.

     

    cathedral of seville Cathedral of Seville, Spain
    Location: Stairway to room 231
    Catalog # 174
    Notes: Donated by the Class of June, 1912. This is the largest of the Gothic cathedrals. In form it is a parallelogram, like the mosque it replaced. It is an imposing and rich structure.

     

    chatres cathedral Chatres Cathedral
    Location: room 111
    Catalog # 157
    Notes: Donated by the Class of June, 1912. To understand the cathedral of Charters in France, the supreme achievement of Gothic architecture in the middle ages and distinctively French, study the details in this picture: the central facade with the portals; the rose windows; the arcade; the two, lofty towers, built in different periods and differing in height. Try to feel its strength and harmony, its dignity and majesty; the grandeur of its grouping; and the quality of its stained glass windows- "Beautiful, impressive, serious, unique." It is invaluable to architects, who increasingly familiarize themselves with its transcendent values. It inspired Lowell's poem, "The Cathedral." "The Cathedral of Chartres," says Henry Adams, "is a revelation of the eternal glory of medieval art."

     

    church of the abbey of st. michel Church of the Abbey of St. Michel, France (interior)
    Location: hall from room 031-033
    Catalog # 177
    Notes: Donated by the Class of June, 1912. St. Michel Isle, which at high tide is little else than a rocky projection, is crowned with this ancient abbey and fortified for protection. The lower story of the church is Norman. The upper story (illustrated here) is late Gothic and has been somewhat restored.

     

    coliseum Coliseum
    Location: 1st floor, right of the auditorium entrance
    Catalog # 159
    Notes: Donated by the Class of January, 1909. The Roman Coliseum is the most immense and most important of the Roman Empire's many amphitheaters. It made so profound an impression upon the people's imagination that it eventually occasioned the saying: "While stands in the Coliseum, Rome shall stand: while Rome, the world". Even in ruin, its vastness and the sweep of its lines inspire awe. The first story is Doric; the second, Ionic; the third, Corinthian; the fourth, composite. Roman architects, diverging from Greek style and methods, used columns for ornament only and through this device modified advantageously the immense mass of their walls. The Coliseum was shaped as an oval because this shape provided the best view of the arena, which was designed for gladiatorial warfare and other spectacles that employed great numbers of participants.

     

    cologne cathedral Cologne Cathedral
    Location: hallway by 131
    Catalog # 158
    Notes: The Cathedral of Cologne is Germany's rendering of Gothic architecture. Medieval Germans, like modern Germans, were thorough craftsmen. They decorated their cathedral in beautiful traceries of flowers, scrollwork, statues, and angels. This cathedral is a stronghold of art as well as of Christianity. Tracery covering the exteriors shows an infinite variety of flowers, scrollwork, grotesque animal forms, statues, and hovering angels. Every grace of ornament that can be fashioned in stone is here. Spires rising from five hundred or even thirteen hundred feet seem covered with lace work in stone. Cologne is the loftiest, the most impressive, and the most solemn of cathedrals.

    the court of lions The Court of Lions, The Alhambra, Granada
    Location: room 013
    Catalog # 148
    Notes: The Alhambra is an example of that Saracen art which reached its finest form in Spain. The twelve lions supporting the marble fountain illustrates the excellent lines and proportions of Moorish sculpture. The symmetry of the arches and the rich ornamentation make this royal castle one of the most beautiful of architectural achievements.

    Notes: Donated by the Class of January, 1919. This is a famous, monastic ruin near Melrose, Scotland. Sir Walter Scott is buried in this abbey.

    Location: Hall from room 031 to 033
    Catalog # 149
    Notes: Donated by the Class of January, 1913. Saracen art depended for decoration on geometric designs in rich colors. The human figure was not, as in Hellenic art, included among artistic forms. The Alhambra was the citadel of Granada when that city was preeminent in the Moorish empire.

    parthenon The Parthenon
    Location: 1st floor, left of auditorium entrance
    Catalog # 168
    Notes: Donated by the Class of January, 1909. This temple upon the Acropolis is the temple of Athene Parthenia (Minerva the Maid), goddess of wisdom. The outer colonnade's marble pillars are the sole remnants of the greatest example of Doric architecture. The Greek emphasized proportion rather than size and used ornament to express structure. The flutings of the columns constitute vertical lines. The capital is adapted in a simple way to hold the lintel in place.

    Pisa Cathedral, Italy (picture not available)
    Location: Hall from room 307
    Catalog # 169
    Notes: Found in northwestern Italy, Pisa's duomo or cathedral is one of the best examples of Romanesque architecture. Because its comparatively small foundation has settled, its leaning tower is sixteen and one-half feet off perpendicular. Except for a peak, rising form the center, the tower is a circular building. Galileo's scientific career began in Pisa's cathedral.

    Location: 1st floor, across from main entrance
    Catalog # 189
    Notes: Donated by the Class of 1902. This photograph is interesting in the history of Spokane's public schools. "South Central", so named in 1907 and burned in 1910, was replaced by the Lewis and Clark High School.

     

    st marks St. Mark's, Venice, Italy
    Location: room 05
    Catalog # 175
    Notes: Donated by the Class of January, 1915. The architecture of St. Mark's is a composite architecture, -Greek, Roman, Gothic, Byzantine, and Saracen in its styles. Begun in 979, it grew in splendor with the growth of Venice in power and pomp. Eight centuries went into constructing and adorning it. Oriental cupolas and spires were gradually erected. The interiror was beautified with mosaics, silver-work-, and precious stones in the most lavish detail.

     

    strassburg cathedral The Strassburg Cathedral
    Location: room 043
    Catalog # 178
    Notes: Donated by the Class of June, 1912. The Strassburg Cathedral represent the noblest architecture of medieval Germany. At Strassburg, lack of unity in construction obtrudes itself immediately on the observer. Every period of style, from earliest Romanesque to latest Gothic is represented; hence the great proportions of forms of the tower; the fretwork in the facade; the lofty spire. All are picturesque in the red sandstone of the Vosges and record the taste of the passing generations.

     

    taj mahal Taj Mahal
    Location: room 121
    Catalog # 261
    Notes: Donated by the Class of January, 1919. The Taj Mahal, a marvelous, memorial mausoleum, is described by travelers as "a glimpse of Paradise" and by many is ranked as the most beautiful building in the world. Constructed of white marble on a terrace also of marble that is itself supported on a terrace of red sandstone, it makes an impression of completeness and perfect unity, a gem of graceful and exquisite architecture.

     

    temple of saturn Temple of Saturn, Rome
    Location: room 113
    Catalog # 181
    Notes: Class of 1913, Orchestra. This temple was probably built on the site of an old one dating from B.C. 486. It was built by Lucius Munatius Plaucus, not as a temple of worship, but as a treasury. Harmony and unity for their own sake were first presented in Greek art.
