JW Waterhouse: A Garden Enchantment Preview

Montreal will be hosting the largest ever retrospective of the work of painter JW Waterhouse over the winter. This is the first large-scale exhibit of his work since 1978 and also the first to give an overview of his entire career. In total the exhibit features 80 of Wterhouse's works. Besides the paintings there are also studies done by the artist in oil, chalk and pencil. This is not to be missed!

John William Waterhouse (1849-1917) was a Rome born but British raised artist that was associated with the pre-Raphaelites painters and was also a classical painter. Many of his paintings revolved around the topics of femme fatales, classical heritage and spiritualism. He was a man who appreciated beauty and was interested in tales and myths. Though his paintings have been loved through the years he is a little known artist amongst the general public. This exhibition will try to change that.

The exhibit is a collaborative work between the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Groninger Museum in the Netherlands and the Royal Academy of Arts in London.
