John W. Waterhouse (English, 1849–1917)
Fair Rosamund, 1917
John William Waterhouse, one of England’s greatest artists, learned to paint in his father’s studio before attending Academy schools. A member of the Royal Academy, Waterhouse possessed a profound sense of the dramatic that was enforced by his strong compositions and masterful technique. The sadly pensive and spiritually evocative women in his magnificent narrative paintings endure as archetypal images of the Victorian age.
