John William Waterhouse 1849-1917

"Flora" 1890 by John William Waterhouse
I love the paintings of John William Waterhouse. This painting called "Flora" is so natural, relaxed, modern and heart-felt that it feels like he could have painted it yesterday. You can read about him here:

I saw "Ulysses and the Sirens" when it travelled to the Portland Art Museum and I'll never forget it. It was quite large, very surreal and masterful. He handled his mythical subjects with the same grace as his portraits of young girls.
