Godward, Waterhouse, and Leighton

Some of my readers may recognize the two paintings by John William Godward that were used in the header of my blog:  Idleness and The Seamstress.  I realize that there are many paintings which show the various fiber arts; however, there are not that many set in classical times.  There are at least three more by Godward:

A Stitch in Time

Sewing Girl

On the Balcony

Then there are these two by John William Waterhouse:

La Fileuse

Penelope and the Suitors

And, finally, this one by Frederic Lord Leighton

Winding the Skein

These and many other paintings can be seen at the site Art Magick  ( )
