The Signal, 1899 // painting by John William Godward. Inspired by the painter Sir Lawrence Alma Tadema, Godward imitated his Neoclassical style. Both were Academic artists and counted among the members of the "Marble School," known for its depictions of subjects drawn from ancient Greek and Roman life placed in elaborate settings, with especially careful and realistic rendering of details like marble and flowers.

One of Giotto’s 38 frescoes in the Scrovegni is Lamentation – mourning the death of Jesus Christ. What was especially striking in the Middle Ages is that Giotto broke away from his contemporary way of portraying anatomically accurate human bodies. Instead of displaying such factual acuity, Giotto’s works are appealing to human emotions. The smooth combination of pastel colors and rich facial expressions are essential in creating that sensation.
