After beckoning a young sailor with her beautiful music, the Siren simply gazes with sorrowful eyes as he is gashed and left to drown against the sharp rocks. Drawing from the rich tales of Greek mythology, Waterhouse painted his strikingly beautiful Siren as one of the powerful femme fatales in whom he seemed to find a muse. The works of this English painter celebrated mythology and literature. 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.
  • 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.
