Inspired to Look By Jean

Today Jean suggested I look at the works of JW Waterhouse for the interesting effects of light , especially The Magic Circle.

I also saw these while I looked at that:

Personally that's how I wait for my man each day... Fair Rosamund indeed! Look at her tapestry behind her. Instead I have my frame !

Sleep and his half brother death, look how light indicates each brothers name.

Though Thisbe is a comely model it is the distance light through the window that beckons me

  1. Forgot to tell you...if you go to there are links to info on Waterhouse including short videos of the Curator discussing some of the famous paintings...the symbolism, style, etc. I especially like Nymphs Finding Orpheus' Head. I can think of a few hooker's heads I'd like to find floating. The exhibit runs to Sept 13 so the web page should be up all week. Jean
