Boreas, 1903: Canvas Replica Painting: Small
By artist John William Waterhouse, (1849-1917), in a Private Collection
Called "Boreas" after the God of the north wind in Greek mythology, this turn-of-the-century genre work depicts a young girl in swirling draperies of slate blue, amidst a spring landscape of pink blossoms and daffodils. Since British artist Waterhouse's later works were portraits of particularly tragic or powerful femme fatales, he may have intended to evoke that sense of power with this mesmerizing work. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its subtle brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. Our replica European style, bright gold-toned ribbed frame is cast in quality designer resin with an acanthus leaf and floret border that draws the eye toward the beautiful image.
