1. Esme (1919). William Clarke Wontner (British, 1857-1930). Oil on canvas.

    Wontner was a relatively minor painter who was part of the neo-classical movement in England. His style favoured seductively languorous women against classical or oriental marbled backdrops. His faithfully rendered fabrics created an air of Orientalism.
