Charles Knighton Warren (British, fl.1876-1892)

Subjects showing everyday life from Greek, Roman, or Egyptian times were very popular at the end of the 19th century. Single female figures such as this were also favourite subjects for many artists. This brightly lit and sharply defined picture is painted in the academic figure style of this period. Knighton Warren was a London artist. He showed this painting at the Royal Academy of Art, London in 1881.
