About the artwork
About the artist
About the artwork
Tennyson's literature was popular with the Pre-Raphaelites, and is the subject of 'The Lady of Shalott'. The Lady drifts in her candle-lit boat downstream thinking of Camelot, amongst a beautiful natural scene. The setting is not identified, although the Waterhouses frequently visited Somerset and Devon. The model is traditionally said to be the artist's wife.

About the artist
English painter John William Waterhouse entered the Royal Academy Schools in London in 1870. He regularly travelled abroad, particularly to Italy. Waterhouse created a distinctive type of female beauty which dominates his work. Waterhouse is the best known of the artists who from the 1880s revived the literary themes popularised by the Pre-Raphaelites, though he was not Pre-Raphaelite in technique. Other influences include the Newlyn School, literature and Greek mythology.
