Description: Phaidon, Oxford, (1989).. 126 pp + index, 4to (11 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Profusely illustrated with color and b&w reproductions. "John W. Waterhouse (1849-1917) was acclaimed during his lifetime as one of England's finest painters. This judgment has been endorsed in recent years as the painter's reputation - and the value of his work - have reached new heights..He began to exhitit in the 1870s and from then on his career unfolded steadily; he was elected a full Royal Academician in 1895, and his Diploma painting, 'The Mermaid', remains one of the best-loved of all Victorian paintings. Waterhouse was a master of narrative painting, and in his historical and mythological works he displayed an unerring feeling for the dramatic moment, combined with a fine sense of composition and superb painting technique. But above all it is the haunting beauty of his wistful female models that has ensured his lasting popularity..Anthony Hobson brings a painter's eye to the appreciation of Waterhouse, and with its outstanding colour reproductions this new study will finally establish the artist as one of the great masters of Victorian painting." Faint erased pencil mark on free front endpaper, minor edge wear. Dust jacket has light rubbing, light edge wrinkling, very light edge wear at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds. VG/VG-.
