J. W. Waterhouse

£19.99

Product description

John W. Waterhouse (1849-1917) was acclaimed during his lifetime as one of England's finest painters. This judgement has been endorsed in recent years as the painter's reputation - and the value of his work - have reached new heights. 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. In their dramatic settings, they have become archetypal Victorian images.

This hardback 1989 first edition published by Phaidon is in a good, used condition. The dustjacket is priceclipped and is heavily turned along the top and bottom edges. There are also a few creases. The blackcloth boards are gilt-stamped on the spine and a little faded along the top edge. The endpapers are a slightly spotted. However, the text block appears to be free from marks and is beautifully illustrated with 97 illustrations, including 59 in colour.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
