Waterhouse, John William Biography


Victorian Pre-Raphaelite artist John William Waterhouse was an English artist of classical, historical, and literary subjects. Early in his career he painted Greek and Roman subjects, but in the 1880s he turned to literary themes, painted in a distinctive, dreamily romantic style. In approach John William Waterhouse was influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites, but his handling of paint is quite different from theirs - rich and sensuous. His work includes such classic Victorian anthology pieces as The Lady of Shalott (Tate Gallery, London, 1888) and Hylas and the Nymphs (City Art Gallery, Manchester, 1896).
