‘Andraste of Waterloo’


Prints available here.

A painting for the trading card set ‘Bombshells, Women of War’. I went Napoleonic. Or Wellingtonian, rather.
‘Andraste’ is a war goddess of the ancient Britons, said to have been called upon by Boudicca herself before battle. This is how she might look if materialising on the battlefield of Waterloo in 1815.

The inspirations for this include a very famous painting of Napoleon astride his horse (‘Napoleon Crossing the Alps’ by Jacques-Louis David), and a lovely photo of Florence Welch for Vogue.
12 x 10 inches on canvas
