Artwork Title: An Amateur

An Amateur, 1915

John William Godward

A young Grecian maid is leaning back in her chair to review a line drawing of a bronze statue of Jupiter that she has been endeavouring to portray on a small tablet. An abalone shell serving as an ink-well, is set aside on the marble table top beside her. The roses on the table and the bronze of a naked and muscular male figure suggest that the girl’s mind may also be preoccupied with amorous thoughts. (
