John William Godward did not have it very easy in his childhood, the bossy nature of his parents made him a restrained and closed man. Even his career choice of the artist did not arrive well in the London civil servants family. Godward studied architectural drawing, the painter and draftsman Sir Lawrence Alma Tadema became his patron and as of 1887 he was able to show some of his works in the Royal Academy of Arts. It was followed by the Royal Society of British Artists and 1889 the Salon de Paris.

Godward is one of the neoclassical painters of the Victorian era, his style is characterized by classical architecture, ancient Rome, motionless landscapes and marble structures. His patron coined him strongly, evil tongues see Godward only as a student of Alma-Tadema. In addition to the classic architectural portrait, his motifs also include posing women in classicistic garb, nude and half-nude drawings appear less frequently, but nevertheless, as for example in "Im Tepidarium". In terms of clothing, costumes and architecture, Godward's attention to detail and authenticity were important, which is why he spent a lot of time researching. One of his most famous works is "Dolce far Niente". Godward frequently produced several versions of his works, of which there are three, the Broadway star Andrew Lloyd Webber bought the 1904 version for his private collection. This is probably his most famous work "Sweet Nothings". His color palette, especially in women's motifs, is usually powerful and colorful. Godward had made a name for herself through the beautiful women in classical surroundings and his technical mastery. He also ran a painting workshop in London.

In his life, Godward also developed a love for Italy, in the country he is said to have been for the first time in 1905. In 1912, Godward pulled out one of his models, whereupon the family broke off contact. For years he lived in Rome on the grounds of Villa Strohl-Fern, where many well-known artists have their studios rented by patronage. During his almost ten-year stay, he created "The Belvedere". Also in Capri he should have stayed more often. At the beginning of the 1920s, he returned to England for health reasons. He died a little later of suicide, whereupon his family burned all the pictures and papers of him. In a farewell letter Godward is said to have written that the world is not big enough for him and Pablo Picasso. During the turn to modern art and Cubism Godward saw his work as obsolete, he took less and became depressed. Today, his Greco-Roman inspired works and his history painting are well known. © Meisterdrucke
