This comprehensive survey presents the work of John William Waterhouse RA (1849-1917), one of Britains bestknown nineteenth-century painters. Extensively illustrated with beautiful reproductions which capture the visual impact of Waterhouses large, richly coloured and seductive canvases and studies, the book deals with the artists vision of femininity and his engagement with contemporary concerns, ranging from medievalism to the classical tradition and spiritualism. Waterhouses connections with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and the influence of French art of the period are also explored. Edited by the renowned Waterhouse specialist Peter Trippi, this sumptuous book makes a vital contribution to the history of British art.
