Well Done Kitsch

Pompeian Lady by the British painter John William Godward (1861 –1922). The painting ist well done and reflects the newest historical knowledge about Roman architecture and clothing. Though it's above all a Victorian lady in a  well painted  Roman costume.

  1. I love Orientalist images of what ancient Rome might have looked like...whether the architecture was based on recent scientific data taken from digs or not. Godward's lady looked gorgeous and was standing in a beautifully designed room.
