That Waterhouse "Idealized ... Type" - A Video
Peter Trippi describes the women in Nino's works as an "idealized, instantly recognizable type." "... Waterhouse transcended the particularities of individual models to present his own idealized, instantly recognizable type, varied primarily by hair colour. Older contemporaries, such as Rossetti, Poyntner and Moore, had devised their own types." ... from 'J. W. Waterhouse' by Peter Trippi Peter goes on: "Waterhouse relied on two or three principal models during each phase of his career, and by 1898 Spielmann joined a long list of commentators who regretted Waterhouse's 'single type of feminine beauty [which] should occasionally be varied'." [url=http://youtube.com/watch?v=qUUquJN2UqM]That "Idealized" ... Waterhouse Type"[/url] is a new YouTube video slideshow to celebrate that "idealized, instantly recognizable type" that we love ... (nevermind Mr. Spielmann and the others.) :)
