Ophelia, 1894, by John Waterhouse.  I love Waterhouse's paintings - many are based on classic tales and legends and all are just gorgeous!

The Lady of Shalott  There she weaves by night and day    A magic web with colours gay.    She has heard a whisper say,    A curse is on her if she stay        To look down to Camelot.    She knows not what the curse may be,    And so she weaveth steadily,    And little other care heat she,        The Lady of Shalott.
