This week’s featured image is: The classic red-haired beauty stopping to “smell the roses” is thought to have been inspired by Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poem, “Come Into The Garde, Maud” of a woman pining for her lost love.
This week’s featured image is: Miranda Shakespeare’s heroines provided the inspiration for several paintings by John William Waterhouse including “Juliet” (Romeo & Juliet), “Miranda” (The Tempest) and many studies of “Ophelia” (Hamlet).
This week’s featured image is The Lady of Shalott. This painting ranks in my top 3 favorite paintings by John William Waterhouse (1849-1917). John William Waterhouse was a member of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and many of his works are depictions of some of my favorite figures in literature, poetry, and history.
No post today but a head’s up on something neat coming up here starting tomorrow. 🙂 June is my birthday month and to celebrate, I’m resurrecting the Sunday Sketches column, this month only, to celebrate my all-time favorite painter, John William Waterhouse.
