  • John William Waterhouse Selections


    John William Waterhouse(1849-1917). English painter. I quite admire his work. Why are women not portrayed with such passion and dignity today I ask? Early in his career he painted Greek and Roman subjects, but in the 1880s he turned to literary themes, painted in a distinctive, dreamily romantic style. In approach, he was influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites perhaps, but his handling of paint is quite different from theirs–rich and sensuous. His work includes such classic Victorian anthology pieces as The Lady of Shalott (Tate Gallery, London, 1888) which is amoung the works presented in this short selection. Frankily the man said very little and little is known about him in comparision to his contemporaries. Or better put, perhaps he said plenty and quite a bit more than his contempories non-verbally through none other than his inimitable brush and paint. I put this selection of exerpts from the “Kyrie” introductory movement of WAMozart’s Mass In C minor. K.427 as performed by the Amor Artis Chorale and English Chamber Orchestra in 1975.
