John William Waterhouse, R.A., R.I. 1849-1917 British

John William Waterhouse is undoubtedly one of the premier British painters of the later 19th century. Heavily influenced by the Pre-Raphaelite movement, his work is a reflection of his fascination with women and nature as translated through stunning mythological and literary narratives. Waterhouse is known for his fantastic imagery and impeccable ability for capturing emotion within his subjects. His tremendous understanding of symbolism is evident, often portraying beautiful women immersed in nature or in the role of the femme fatale influencing men with an aura of charm and mystery.
