    pre-raphaelite-art-john-william-waterhouse-flora-Maria Zambaco by Edward Coley Burne-Jones As someone that’s interested in fashion, I love how the PRB captured their ideas of beauty in a woman. Long, flowing wavy hair, big doe eyes, and a natural glow seems central to this standard of beauty. A lot of the luminescent in these paintings comes from how the PRB painted. They laid down white paint on the foreground and then added color.

    John William Waterhouse - Flora and the Zephyrs detail. Waterhouse's painting shows the moment when Zephyr first set eyes upon and fell in love with Flora, as she gathered flowers in the fields with her maidens and children. He flies down to her, accompanied by his winged companions. and captures her by casting a garland of white flowers around her.
