      Hylas & the Nymphs (detail, 1896) by John William Waterhouse. What frail, idealised bodies the nymphs have. Yet they pose an element of dangerous seduction as well, as they abduct Hylas. Pre-Raphaelite art was a first potent combination of new artistic style and beauty ideals with conservative themes and power dynamics.

    John William Waterhouse, Hylas and the Nymphs (détail). So interested in the treatment of water; descriptive but not naturalistic. Speaks to the pre-raph interest I poetry and allegory, and even to their studio practice ( use of tableaux and staging)
