Some of my favourite paintings by J.W. Waterhouse, the "Modern Pre-Raphaelite", found on this excellent web site.

My wife recently visited an exhibition of his work at the The Royal Academy of Arts in London, which includes these paintings among many others. She tells me that the originals have a kind of lustrous beauty that doesn't show up in reproductions (as I found out for myself when I later visited the exhibition).
