Footnotes

  • John William Godward was born in 1861 and lived in Wilton Grove, Wimbledon, London. Greatly influenced by the work of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, he exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1887 and achieved great success early on in his career.

    Most of Godward's oeuvre features young beauties in Classical dress posed against a static landscape feature composed of marble, however, it does include some nude and semi-nude figures. After the Bath falls into this category while maintaining many of the features for which Godward is so greatly admired: his attention to architectural detail, his vibrant palette, and his admiration of the female form.

    We are grateful to Professor Vern Swanson for confirming the attribution to John WIlliam Godward.
