posted a Quick Tip about Lamia (Draper). July 29, 2010
Draper's depiction of Lamia seems somehow colder and more emotionally distant than the two versions done by Waterhouse, but I love the textures and colors here. A very moody and evocative piece.

The Beguiling of Merlin
Although I don't visualize either Merlin or the Lady of the Lake looking like this, I do love this painting and the use of soft Earth-tone colors. Somehow, it also reminds me of the Elves in Tolkien's …

Beata Beatrix
I'm not a religious person, not in the least, but there is something inherently spiritual about this Rossetti painting that I find to be at once both rapturous and heartbreaking. It's a shame that he …

A Mermaid
For me, this is one of Waterhouse's greatest works and it remains the singular image of a mermaid that comes to mind. Hauntingly beautiful.

Lady Godiva
I love all of Collier's work, but I regard this and Lilith as his ultimate masterpieces. I love the lighting to this and the composition. At once the painting is both melancholy and sensual.

The Lady of Shalott
One of my favorite Pre-Raphaelite works. This image is almost synonymous with Tennyson's poem.

Lamia (Waterhouse Version I)
Waterhouse's first Lamia painting is more melancholy & tender than his second. Here we see that longing look of love that was his signature.

Queen Quinevere's Maying
As far as artistic depictions of Guinevere go, I don't think anybody has done better than John Collier did with this astonishing painting.

The Damsel of the Sanct Grail
I just recently discovered this piece. I think it's so haunting & dark. One of the lesser known Rossetti paintings I think, but a great one.

Sibylla Palmifera
An absolutely gorgeous painting. Something is so alluring about Rossetti's bright color palette, his use of melancholy eyes & full lips.

A superbly rendered illustration from "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland". Whimsical, fantastic, and little bit dark.
