Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The lure of the siren, the comeliness of the mermaid, the elegiac beauty of Ophelia — in page after page of captivating paintings by such artists as J.W. Waterhouse, Frederick Lord Leighton, Gustav Klimt, Edward Burne-Jones, and other Pre-Raphaelites, this exquisite volume takes a mystical journey into the deep waters where romantic art flows together with female enigma and timeless mystery. These sensuous images — many inspired by literary scenes from the likes of Homer's Odyssey, Mallory's Morte d'Arthur, and Tennyson's "Lady of Shalott" — seduce the eye and beguile the mind, making From the Deep Waters a visual delight and a gift to be treasured.
