John William Waterhouse

(The Magic Circle - 1886)___________________________(Boreas - 1903)
(Lady of the Shallot - 1888)
(Ophelia - 1889)

I love the work of John William Waterhouse (1849-1917). There is a magical feminine elegance to them. They are also mysterious and haunting - fitting to the season. My two personal favorites are The Magic Circle and Boreas but it's so hard to choose one over the other. To my eye they are all wonderful!!

To view all of his paintings on-line go to

"a gleaming shape she fload'd by,
Dead-pale between the houses high, Silent into Camelot" - La Farge
