Albert Moore’s paintings often included anachronistic details, like the book the women read in this ‘classical’ scene. One of the key figures in British Aestheticism, historical accuracy was not as important to Moore as the beauty of colour, line and form. Curator of British Art Jo Meacock reveals what it is that is so radical and ahead of its time about this enigmatic, decorative painting.
