Godward was estranged from his family, and upon his death by suicide they burned his letters. They are said to have burned all photographs as well, and even to have cut his image out of family photos. The man in this painting is supposed by some to be a self portrait, so it is possibly the only likeness we have of the artist.

Our Approach:
Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
