Which vibe do you prefer? Same model, same dress, same wreath of flowers, different vibe. John William Godward (1861-1922) painted both works in 1902. The first one is known as With Violets Wreathed and Robe of Saffron Hue, and the second one Ionian Dancing Girl. Both paintings are created in the late Neoclassical style for which Godward has become famous. His paintings often contain similar elements, such as a woman dressed in a colorful dress, marble, animal skins, flowers, and the sea in the background. And it is the way in which he captures all these contrasting surfaces so convincingly that have made Godward’s work popular. I found it interesting to come across these two works, painted shortly after each other. There are many similarities, but yet they evoke a different feeling. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #FineArts #ArtoftheDay #Godward #Neoclassical #Neoclassicism #BritishArtist #BritishPainter #BritishArt #Classical #Relaxed #GoodLife #Colorful
