Neo-Classical artist John William Waterhouse was renowned for lifelike, lavish works that were hauntingly sensual. Born in Italy and raised in England, Waterhouse (1849 – 1917) was a leading painter of historical, mythological, and literary subjects. His work had strong romantic Pre-Raphaelite influences, with a strong Victorian narrative. Waterhouse was a member of the Royal Academy, and often painted powerful or doomed women. Achieving success during his lifetime, Waterhouse created more than 200 artworks.
