Bad Romance- J.W. Waterhouse




  1. Thanks so much for this post. Turning the paintings upside down really helps see the compositions. In The Siren I noticed also the sharp arrow between the rocks pointing down at the man. To me, not only is it a visual pointer to force my eye down, but also a commentary--the sharp, pointy shape seems dangerous. Nothing good will come from this situation! But it's a mighty fine painting.
