John William Waterhouse - English

Ulysses and the Sirens, 1891
Tristan and Isolde

The Mermaid


Waterhouse was the last of the Pre-Raphaelite painters, sometimes called 'the modern Pre-Raphaelite'. His work differs from that of the earlier PR painters as he picked up some of the techniques of the Impressionists, and his brushwork is more painterly. Last year there was a large retrospective exhibition of his work that travelled to galleries in the Netherlands, the UK, and Canada.
