ZJ. W. Waterhouse Catalogue
This groundbreaking survey presents the work of John William Waterhouse RA (1849-1917), one of Britain's best-loved 19th-century painters. Although Waterhouse's compelling scenes are admired worldwide, the story of the man behind them is relatively little known. Extensively illustrated with beautiful reproductions which capture the visual impact of his large, richly coloured canvases, the book explores his particular vision of femininity and his retelling of such Romantic touchstones as The Lady of Shalott and La Belle Dame Sans Merci as well as the classics of Homer and Ovid.
Featuring contributions from leading authorities on Victorian art, including the Waterhouse biographer Peter Trippi, this sumptuous book demonstrates his distinctive role in the history of British art.
The catalogue contains 237 pages with 180 illustrations, measuring 29.5 x 24.5cms. Please note that this catalogue now has Gather Ye Rosebuds While Ye May on the front cover and The Lady Of Shalott on the back.
