Canvas Framed Print titled "Lady of Shallot" by artist John William Waterhouse.

John William Waterhouse was born in Rome in 1849 and was a painter of classical, historical, and literary subjects. Best known for his large-scale paintings of classical mythological subjects. He assisted his father at his studio in Rome who was also painter. He studied at the Royal Academy in London in 1870 at first pursuing sculpture before switching to painting. Waterhouse painted more than once the main figure in Tennyson’s 1832 poem The Lady of Shallot. In his 1888 painting, he depicted her seated in a boat floating downstream to her imminent death. He was honored as an associate member in 1885 at the Royal Academy and then a full Royal Academician in 1895.
