John William Waterhouse was an English Pre-Raphaelite painter who is most famous for his depictions of female characters from Greek and Arthurian mythology.

Waterhouse was one of the final Pre-Raphaelite artists, being most productive in the latter decades of the 19th century and early decades of the 20th, long after the era of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood.  Because of this, he has been referred to as "the modern Pre-Raphaelite".  Also he incorporated techniques borr (showing 500 of 6108 characters).
