J.W.Waterhouse Is The Greatest Of The Late Pre-Raphaelite Artists, For A Reason

John William Waterhouse - Artguilds
John William Waterhouse was an English-Italian painter considered one of the greatest exponents of late Pre-Raphaelite art. His delicate and romantic paintings told the stories of Greek-Roman myths as powerfully as like no other before him. Born in Rome in 1849 from two English painters: William and Isabella Waterhouse. This early period in Italy made a profound connection between him and Italy’s classical art heritage. Throughout his school education, his artistic talent lay dormant but still he was constantly obsessed by ancient history. His talent exploded during his first apprenticeship in his father’s Atelier. Through his early works, he gained a place in the Royal Academy of Art. He initially started to study sculpture, but then he moved to oil paint, becoming the painter we love.
