John William Godward - Winding the Skein

[Winding the Skein] 1896
oil on canvas
52 x 59.5"

unusual for this period of his art for featuring more than one figure. Generally he used Italian models, but these seem to be Anglo-Saxon.

1861 - 1922

I agree he had a lovely touch and a real sense of how to use colour.
