John William Waterhouse (6 April 1849 – 10 February 1917) was an English painter known for working in the painterly version of the Academic style. His artworks were known for their depictions of women from both ancient Greek mythology and Arthurian legend. John William Waterhouse Gallery
One of Waterhouse’s most famous paintings is The Lady of Shalott, a study of Elaine of Astolat, who dies of grief when Lancelot will not love her. Another of Waterhouse’s favorite subjects was Ophelia; the most famous of his paintings of Ophelia depicts her just before her death, putting flowers in her hair as she sits on a tree branch leaning over a lake.
Waterhouse could not finish the series of Ophelia paintings because he was gravely ill with cancer by 1915. He died two years later, and his grave can be found at Kensal Green Cemetery in London. Source [WikiPedia]
