Extractions: The Toilet John William Godward was born into a wealthy family which thoroughly disapproved of his becoming an artist. Nevertheless, he became a painter, based in London, and exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1887. He fell in love with one of his models - an Italian girl - and when he 'ran off to Italy with her' it was the last straw, his figure being cut out from the family portraits. Godward's subjects are typically beautiful girls in classical robes on marble terraces. He was the most skilled from a number of artists who followed the highly popular style of Alma Tadema , and at his peak was nearly as famous. However, he had the misfortune to survive to a time when the Victorian artists, and Alma Tadema in particular, were held in low esteem. After living entirely in Rome from around 1912-1919, he returned to England, only to kill himself by putting his head in a gas oven in 1922. Godward's paintings, as noted above, were very much in the 'girls on marble terraces' school after Alma Tadema , but he was also a great admirer of Leighton , and the high finish of his oil paintings, showing no trace of a brushstroke, is much closer to Leighton than to Alma Tadema. Typically, his paintings are without any story, focussed on a single girl, large on the canvas, semi-draped or wearing translucent garments, giving a sensuality somewhat diminished by the careful, classical composition of the rest of the picture. Often the model is recognisable as his Italian girl, with black hair parted in the middle, very large eyes, thick eyebrows and a rounded face. However, other models also appear frequently in his pictures, including one looking much like Alma Tadema's wife or daughters.

Extractions: "Godward's art was more than escapist; it was purposely beautiful in an age plunging headlong into atrocity. He sought to portray peace, feminine beauty and ideal perfection by marvellously painted and composed pictures of beautiful women in halcyon classical environments." (Vern Grosvenor Swanson, John William Godward - The Eclipse of Classicism , Biography and Catalogue Raisonné) As was customary for the period, Godward painted this reduced version of his 1894 Royal Academy exhibit, A Priestess , for the preparation of an engraving. The wood engraver, W. Biscome Gardner, used it to produce a print of

Extractions: Godward is yet another late 19th century neoclassical painter who was bulldozed aside with the coming of the modernist stampede of the early 20th century. At an exhibit of various paintings of this genre at the Getty Museum I asked some questions of the docent about Godward and she showed me the sum of the information available on him and his works (she claimed this was all that has ever been written about him) and it filled perhaps half a page. Unfortunately Godward committed suicide after being savaged by critics and reportedly left a note indicating something to the effect that the world was not big enough for him and a Picasso The Favorite Dolce far Niente (1904) Tigerskin The Toilet ...

Extractions: John William Godward was one of the best of the followers of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. (Alma-Tadema's followers are now known as 'The Marble School'). Godward devoted his whole life to painting girls in classical robes, usually posing decoratively on a marble terrace. Unlike many of Alma-Tadema's followers, Godward painted well and at his best was almost as good as, if not sometimes better than, Alma-Tadema. Unfortunately, he had come into an area of painting that was already overcrowded with artists who were striving to find new variations on a theme that was overworked by the turn of the century. By the 1920s most Victorian paintings had become a subject of mockery, and none more so than the neo-classical subjects. Godward was unable to change his style of painting and when, he found himself unable to sell his paintings, he committed suicide by putting his head in a gas oven. His family were so ashamed of Godward and his suicide that they destroyed almost all of his papers and photographs. Not one photograph of him survives. Godward exhibited 19 pictures at the Royal Academy between 1886 and 1916 and he lived for some time in Chelsea, London.

Extractions: Little has been recorded of the life of John William Godward. Inspired by the painter Sir Lawrence Alma Tadema, Godward imitated his Neoclassical style. Both were counted among the members of the "Marble School," known for its depictions of subjects drawn from ancient Greek and Roman life placed in elaborate settings, with especially careful and realistic rendering of details like marble and flowers. Godward regularly exhibited his paintings at the prestigious Royal Academy in London, where they were initially greatly admired by the public. By the time he was in his fifties, however, the Marble School's approach had fallen out of favor. Godward nonetheless continued to paint in this manner until his death at age sixty-one.
