Weary of her pursuit by Apollo, the goddess Daphne cries to her father, the river god Peneus, who transforms her into a laurel tree. Though Waterhouse captures the moment as her limbs and those of the tender tree become one, he also shares the enduring tenderness in her would-be lover's eyes. Woman or tree, Apollo loves her still. This English artist, a graduate of the Royal Academy, painted in the Pre-Raphaelite style. 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.
