Lady of Shalott, 1888, Canvas Replica Painting: Small
I have always been drawn to this painting, and have contemplated buying it for years. There's just something about the beauty and despair of the Lady of Shalott that draws you in. I finally decided to purchase it, and it arrived well packaged in several layers of plastic wrap, styrofoam, and cardboard. I was a bit disappointed with the quality of the painting. I did not see any "brushstrokes", and the print appears to be a high grade color copy with a matte finish. Nonetheless, this is a gorgeous piece of art to hang in your home. I have it in my entryway and it receives compliments the minute people walk through the door. The frame is a beautiful, high quality frame, and adds to the elegance of the Lady of Shalott.
