Annie Louisa Swynnerton - Head of a Bacchante

Signed and dated: Annie L Swynnerton 1903.

Presented by Mrs Richard Shute, 1937; WA1937.118.

Anna Robinson married the sculptor, Joseph Swynnerton, in Rome in 1883 and remained there until his death in 1910. This painting was probably made from a local model, the garland added to raise the subject from a simple portrait.
