A large and monumental allegorical oil on canvas by Charles Allan Winter featuring a dying Roman warrior being attended to by a raven haired Art Nouveau stylized maiden. Work is signed by the artist "Chas. Winter 1896 Paris" lower right, an early offering from this highly regarded vanguard artist. This was presumably created while Winter was studying at the Julianne Academie of Paris, this has a wonderful Pre-Raphaelite dramatic and impacting style. The large size of the work makes one think this also might have been an early commissioned mural created by the artist.

Winter illustrated Roycrofter Hubbard's 'Little Sermons' in Cosmopolitan magazine. His work was often featured in Hubbard's The Fra Magazine his style and aesthetic was recognized by proponents of that influential and lasting movement. This would be a great fit in an American Arts & Crafts/Bungalow environment. The grand scale of the painting adds to its evocative epic charm.
