Under the Influence

Sir William Russell Flint was 'guilty' of Drawing Under the Influence of Mucha, here with this portrayal of Clotho—one of the classic Three Fates of ancient Greek mythology. Here she is spinning the thread of human life.

This image is from The Thoughts of the Emperor Marcus Aurelius Antoninus, edition published in 1909.

Willingly give thyself up to Clotho,
allowing her to spin thy thread into
whatever things she pleases.
