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.

Factual/spelling error[Close]   I have not got any conerns about this artwork by Dame Laura Knight. I thought that you may like to know that I modelled for the girl on the diving board. Laura was staying at the Park hotel in Colwall England on Auguat 22 1958 and the picture is of the swimming pool at the hotel. She asked me to model for her and I had no idea who she was so when I went home I told my grandmother that a lady at the pool asked me to pose for her. She said thats Laura Knight ask her for her autograph when you swim tomorrow. She did more that that she sketched me a clown and signed and dated it and I still have it on my wall to this day.
