Now these :)! Where do I even start with this guy!?

Captivating. Enchanting. & even though many of his best paintings, the raw messages rather, are taken from the mythology of ancient Greece, 1500+ years earlier- a lot of art work of which didn’t survive- he captures them so well; that sensuality, that longing, that hope, the thoughts, the dreams, those finer moments in life.

& I find we are seeing those stories & tales through English eyes. I am not on crack I swear- there is something quintessentially English not British but English about these paintings & I love them. Here’s a few by the John William Waterhouse.
