This is one of my all time favorites! I have a print in a gold frame. It's been up in my room for years! Isn't it at the Tate in London?

Probably, I don't know. In my room I have three Muchas, and one Klimt. Waterhouse's work is so attractive and romantic, it's no wonder he's still popular.

The dreaminess, the mystery, the link to a distant unknowable past. What is that along the side of the boat? Maybe a blanket with a shield design? And the boat has a figure at the front giving it a Viking suggestion.......and of course our subject who wears white is disconnected from it all.
Its all so beautiful and mysterious.

Thanks for sharing it with us.
