Waterhouse at the Lady Lever Pt. 2
Sorry, it seems to have scrunched the picture down. I've decided to add it to a page on it's own on my website. You can see it here
. Not sure how long it'll be there, so feel free to download it and keep it on your computer :)
Thank you so much for this. It's a shame that not only are they too high but they're covered in glass. Those are nice Rosettis too. I'm generally not so enthused by his work. Whose is the one on the lower left? Is that Leighton? I have to study the enchanted garden more. It looks far from finished. I wonder how much insight could be gleaned as to his technique.
Thanks Jimma for the photo and pointing out this collection.
David The Enchanted Garden is the best example of JWs later working method. It has everything from the loose thin wash in to almost completed drapery. It confirms Heckomer's description of his working method. I particularly like the order that he has worked up the faces, which shows his keying of different elements in the composition.
Your welcome, Neil. Glad it's of interest :)
And yes, David, that's a Leighton. It's called Psamathe, painted in 1879 - 80 if I remember correctly.
