JOHN WILLIAM WATERHOUSE, R.A.
1849 - 1917

Waterhouse was born in Rome and studied at the Royal Academy Schools. He began as a painter of classical subjects but turned to literary themes in the 1880's. He was influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites in both subject and approach although with a broader technique. Elected RA, 1895, he later taught at the Royal Academy Schools as a respected teacher.
