Pyrallis (1918). In a world where seemingly everyday a new abstract art style was invented, John William Godward (1861-1922) was in search of an ideal world of serenity and beauty, resulting in stunning works like this. And if you are wondering who Pyrallis was, I don't blame you. She has been listed among the lovers of Gaius Caligula, but that is not the person Godward tried to portray here. He just picked an ancient name to further emphasize the idea that this work was inspired by the ancient beauty. Godward's idea was to create a dream world in his paintings. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPaint #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #Beauty #Classical #Classic #Ancient #Pyrallis #Godward #JohnWilliamGodward #Ideal #Idealism #Serenity #Portrait #Pink
