John William Waterhouse (British, 1849-1917) in studio. Photograph by Ralph W. Robinson. Published in Members and Associates of the Royal Academy of Arts, 1891, Photographed in their Studios (1892). National Portrait Gallery, London.
The unfinished picture on the easel is an early study for the 1894 The Lady of Shalott. Among the items on the cabinet behind Waterhouse is an old statue reflecting his interest in classical antiquities: “It is recorded of his childhood that a fragment of Pompeian fresco was his most cherished treasure.”
"Refusing to be hemmed in by London’s icy weather, Princess Diana donned a cool skirt and went a second time to the new musical, The Phantom of the Opera.”
