Description

Lady of Shalott

Waterhouse originally painted "Lady of Shalott" in 1888.  This 40” by 30” (102 by 76 cm) hand painted oil painting reproduction and is beautifully detailed, and the same scale as the artist's original.

John William Waterhouse 1849-1917

John William Waterhouse was born in Rome, and was always known by his family, and personal friends as Nino, the diminutive of the Italian Giovanino. Both his parents were artists. Today Waterhouse is possibly the most popular of all the artists on this web site. It is interesting to note, however, that little is known about his personal life today, considering he died in 1917, and was an active RA.

Early in his career Waterhouse established his style. It changed little, but he continually refined it, and his beautiful ladies were recognizable flesh and blood, with superb skin tones. He also painted a few excellent portraits of women, some of them being of the members of the Henderson family of Lord Faringdon, of Buscot Park fame. A lot of the pictures spent many years on the walls of prosperous Home Counties families, but the problems of Lloyds of London have, in many cases, forced their sale, just as their real value, and the artistic worth of Waterhouse’s achievement has come to be realized.
