Circa 1886.

John William Waterhouse (1849-04-06 - 1917-02-10) was an English artist and professor. Waterhouse came from a family of artists and was enrolled in the Royal Academy of Art. Waterhouse's style evolved through his life but by his 30s, he was painting in the Pre-Raphaelite style and became arguably the most famous of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood.

I first became of Waterhouse's work after seeing a poster of his 1888 painting, The Lady of Shallot in a shop at the mall. I really enjoyed the print, and later, I recognized the style in additional paintings which a girlfriend explained to me was the Pre-Raphaelite style. I began to really enjoy the style, and saw various other prints at art stores and general kitsch stores in the mall. Later, when trying to form a database of my favorite art, I found the majority of Waterhouse's work available on Wikipedia and really enjoyed it. I've always had an appreciation for the romance of fantasy and mythology, and most of Waterhouse's work has such a focus. However, due to the patriarchal nature of mythology, and Waterhouse's exploitation of it, I often find myself torn between admiring his art, and seeing is as essentially pre-photographic pornography. While there is no shortage of strong men, rarely does Waterhouse paint strong women. Instead, they're often young, innocent and inexperienced, but still eager to please a man. While this certainly fits a boyhood fantasy, it doesn't offer much substance. There are a couple paintings of strong women, but they're still usually sexualized. Of course, I'd be lying if I said I didn't find them erotic.
