          Artist details

          British painter John William Waterhouse entered the RA Schools in 1870 and first exhibited at the RA in 1874. His early subjects were classical and contemporary Italian scenes. In 1888 he painted the Lady of Shalott and then began a series of Pre-Raphaelite themes with a focus on female beauty and symbolism. His later influences were literature and mythology. Waterhouse’s works were well received until the early 20th century when his style had become outdated, a view renounced in the 1960s.
