Reverie 1904: Canvas Replica Painting: Small
By artist John William Godward (1861-1922), at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, California
Named for the daydream in which she is lost, this beautiful young maiden in an idyllic setting, features the classical dress, and lush landscape of its setting in the Pre-Raphaelite era. Godward was an English painter and a protege of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, and his richly detailed work echoes the same attention to history. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its subtle brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. The imported, delicately carved hardwood frame boasts a delicate leaf motif with fine feathered detailing finished in antique gold tones.

John William Godward (1861-1922)

English painter John William Godward painted everyday life scenes in the Pre-Raphaelite and Neo-classical styles. Little is known about Godward's personal life, but he painted primarily classical architecture and landscapes formed by marble. Godward was inspired by fellow neoclassical painter Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema and emulated his Marble School style.

Godward's paintings draw from Ancient Greek and Roman themes and most paintings depict women in Classical clothing, posed against marbled landscapes, such as with The Betrothed. To ensure authenticity, Godward studied architecture and spent a great deal of time making sure every detail was anatomically and historically accurate.

Because of his penchant for painting beautiful women in bright colors, Godward can be classified as a Pre-Raphaelite. Godward is also considered a Victorian Neoclassical painter. This style was common among painters of Godward's era, who produced paintings that were both realistic as well as idealized images of beauty.
