    Art Blog: Waterhouse J.W. Boreas

  • Sand Piper

    Brrr... 'Boreas' by artist John William Waterhouse ◈ (In Greek mythology Boreas was god of the north wind.) Waterhouse masterfully captures the feel of a chilly wind kicking up as a storm rolls in on a fickle spring evening. The artist's touch of tucking a daffodil in the long, dark tresses of the young woman is a charming detail.

    Boreas by John William Waterhouse. Not much about this piece that I do not admire. Simply the beauty of the movement and the detailed of the cloth is breathtaking.

  • Lady Montague-Ponsby-Hume

    Boreas is an oil painting in the Pre-Raphaelite style created in 1903 by John William Waterhouse. The painting is titled Boreas, after the Greek god of the north wind and it shows a young girl buffeted by the wind. Boreas was put up for sale in the mid-1990s after having been lost for 90 years - causing quite a sensation in the art community. The painting achieved a record price for Waterhouse at that time, achieving a price £848,500 ($1,293,962USD).

I'm in love with this print. It seems the perfect thing to have in the living room or bedroom of my first real home. The colors are exquisite, and the message is one of comfort and love.

Shoot idea with extensive work but extensive payoff. Pieces of white fabric for birds, attached to branches in a tree. Run strings from the "birds" to the girl, who is holding an open cage, as if she trained these birds to fly her away and she just released them. This would be cool in a frame.
