Time to relax. The Sweet Siesta of a Summer Day (1891) is a painting by the late Neoclassical artist John William Godward (1861-1922). It shows a fantasy scene of life in Ancient Rome. Godward painted a lot of these scenes. The women in his paintings live a rich and pleasant life and are often just enjoying the weather or relaxing in other ways. This painting is no exception, with one woman playing the flute while the other one is laying down during siesta time. The beauty of this painting also comes from the combination of colors and textures. These two woman are in a Roman villa next to the sea. It is filled with marble and plain-colored walls. These textures are combined with the large tiger skin and the elegant dresses of the women. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #Neoclassical #Neoclassicism #Godward #JohnWilliamGodward #BritishArt #BritishArtist #BritishPainter #Siesta #Summer #SummerDay #Warm #WarmWeather #Relaxing #Flute
