William Clarke Wontner was an English Academic Classical painter (born 1857 - died 1930)Most the paintings I have found so far are of beautiful women and it looks like there was an association with John William Godward, since their style seems very similar. As many artists of this era, Mr. Wontner also strayed into the Orientalist scene and was preoccupied with classical idiom.
