By artist John William Waterhouse (1849-1917), in the Art Gallery of South Australia

Item# FAM-DA2691

$150.00 – $399.00

The art of Waterhouse is beloved for its balance of mythology and beauty. Circe tells the story of a femme fatale in the act of poisoning the sea to turn her rival into a hideous monster. The strikingly deep greens and blues show an aura of romantic menace. Our authentic stretched canvas replica captures the original painting's texture, depth of color, and even its subtle brushstrokes, which are applied by hand. Our replica 4.375" wide, 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 this beautiful image.

  • About The Artist

      John William Waterhouse (1849-1917)
      Pre-Raphaelite painter John William Waterhouse painted female characters from mythology and literature and belonged to the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. His parents were painters and he grew up in Rome where he absorbed the culture rich history and a love for art.

      Waterhouse's first art teacher was his father until he entered the Royal Academy at age 21. Waterhouse was inspired by the paintings of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema whose depictions of classical Roman landscapes and legends appealed to the young painter. He received his diploma from the Academy for his painting of A Mermaid.

      Waterhouse's paintings often depict a romantic approach to the femme fatale for example in La Belle Sans Merci and Hylas and the Water Nymphs. He also often painted a forlorn sole heroine such as The Lady of Shallot one of Waterhouse's most famous paintings.

      Waterhouse's academic and technical skill gained the respect of his peers and critics and his paintings were exhibited at the Academy even after his death in 1917.
