The Water Nymph, 1908: Canvas Replica Painting: Grande
By artist Herbert James Draper (1863-1920), in a Private Collection
A water dwelling spirit prone to luring men to their deaths, Draper's nymph fixes her gaze on the viewer with a look at once thrilling and predatory. British artist Draper was a winner of the Royal Academy Gold Medal and Traveling Studentship, an honor that made him quite sought after as a portrait painter in his later years. 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. The imported, delicately carved hardwood frame boasts a delicate leaf motif with fine feathered detailing finished in antique gold tones.
