John William Waterhouse – ANALYZED PAINTING
320 of 365
Today we’ve got an in-depth look at this great painting by John William Waterhouse. This piece is called “The Lady of Shalott” and that nice red quilt she has there is a result of what she viewed through a mirror during her imprisonment. Yep, she was forbidden to view reality or the outside world, and could only weave what she saw. She does great work, but my Grandma has her beat when it comes to quilting. The last analyzed painting with Rae (see Day 317) was inspiring, so I had to see if Waterhouse was using the same design techniques as the other masters. Let’s dig into it and see how he did.
