This is the Signed original Pencil & Wash by Fortunino Matania.

This is the original hand signed pencil and wash painting used in the magazine Britannia and Eve in 1929. The scene depicts the end of Sappho who was a Greek lyric poet from the island of Lesbos.

She was born sometime between 630 and 612 BCE, and it is said that she died around 570 BCE, but little is known for certain about her life.

This painting features in the book The Art of Fortunino Matania: catalogue of original art & prints as Fig 7.
