Today, many bathtubs look like the one in our illustration. However, they have been very different throughout history.
In ancient Rome, for example, the baths were not private - many people bathed together in large aqueduct-fed pools. The earliest known private bathtub was made of pottery.
Later, bathtubs were made of metal or wood, resembling large buckets.
With no indoor plumbing, water had to be drawn from a well or stream, heated over a fire, and poured into the bath. Later, clawfoot tubs became popular.
You can ponder this modern convenience as you learn how to draw a bathtub.
