Favorite Art: Dolce Far Niente – 1

Dolce far Niente 2One of my favorite artists, John William Godward, painted a few images by the title Dolce Far Niente, which means Sweet Idleness. I adore the beauty he was able to project, teasing the senses with warm colors and materials contrasted by shimmering water and cold marble. But most of all, I love the depiction of those eyes, lost in thought. We are allowed to be part of this enchanting lady’s private moment, which I can savor forever.
