The artwork appearing on the Cancer Control Journal Index features Ganymede by Nicholas Maes, 1670, from the collection of Dr. Gordon and Adele Gilbert of St. Petersburg, Florida. Jupiter, in the form of an eagle, swoops down on the young boy, Ganymede, and carries him off to Mount Olympus where he will be his cup-bearer. The theme was employed to memorialize a dead child.

The artwork featured on the Table of Contents is also from the collection of Dr. Gordon and Adele Gilbert of St. Petersburg, Florida:

Jan Steen, 1650. Fight Over a Game of Cards. This scene of 17th century Dutch peasant life moralizes on the vices of gambling, drinking, and pipe-smoking.

Paulus Potter, 1642. Abraham at Schechem. This scene depicts the moment when God (as rays of light in upper right) bequeathed the holy land to Abraham (lower left) and his descendents forever. (Genesis 12:5-7)

Abraham Bloemaert, 1590. Cain Killing Abel (detail). The Old Testament story of the first murder is related in this scene. (Genesis 4:1-2)

Pieter Baltens, 1580. Feast of St. George. The Flemish 16th century village "kermesse," or fair, celebrating the Feast of St. George is held on April 23rd, one week before May Day. A May Pole is thus a characteristic central feature.

Quirin Brekelenkam, 1662. The Tailor's Workshop. This scene depicts the typical "genre" scene of everyday life in 17th-century Holland. Note the dramatic effect introduced by the complaining customer.
