EDITORS COMMENTS
Mrs Fearnley-Whittingstall in Tennis Shorts: A Modern Amazon in Comparison to the Ancient Greek Sculpture of an Amazon by Pheidias (1933) This photograph captures the youthful and energetic spirit of Mrs Fearnley-Whittingstall as she sits on a bench, dressed in tennis shorts and holding a tennis racket. The image, taken in 1933, portrays Mrs Fearnley-Whittingstall as a modern Amazon, embodying the strength, agility, and independence associated with the legendary warrior women of Greek mythology. For contrast, the photograph is accompanied by a classical Greek sculpture of an Amazon by Pheidias, one of the greatest sculptors in ancient Greece. The Amazon, depicted with her arm raised and holding a spear, embodies the fierce and powerful warrior spirit that resonates with Mrs Fearnley-Whittingstall's tennis attire and demeanor. The 1930s, a decade marked by social and cultural changes, saw an increasing popularity of sports and physical activity for women. Tennis, in particular, became a popular sport for women, and the adoption of shorts as a practical and comfortable alternative to long skirts was a significant shift in fashion. Mrs Fearnley-Whittingstall's tennis outfit represents this new trend, as well as the growing emphasis on physical fitness and athleticism for women. This photograph not only showcases the fashionable and athletic spirit of the 1930s but also highlights the timeless connection between ancient mythology and modern culture. Mrs Fearnley-Whittingstall's likeness to the Amazon warrior in the sculpture serves as a reminder of the enduring power and influence of classical Greek mythology on contemporary society.
