John William Waterhouse’s “The Lady of Shalott” - 1888

The Lady of Shalott There she weaves by night and day A magic web with colours gay. She has heard a whisper say, A curse is on her if she stay To look down to Camelot. She knows not what the curse may be, And so she weaveth steadily, And little other care heat she, The Lady of Shalott.

John William Waterhouse - Psyche (1903). Another Waterhouse favorite of mine. Curiosity...the temptation to peek always takes over before I can stop it...

"Ophelia by John Waterhouse" by The Fine Art Masters

Ophelia, 1894, by John Waterhouse. I love Waterhouse's paintings - many are based on classic tales and legends and all are just gorgeous!
