Waterhouse's Boreas 1903, represents the purple-winged god of the north in Greek mythology through symbolic storytelling. He places his beautiful subject at the forefront of the painting and celebrates her beauty with dark hair and porcelain skin. With a penchant for sad, despairing heroines, Waterhouse endows her with an expression of melancholy. Symbolizing the god of the north wind, the artist creates movement in the subject's garments by contrasting light and dark to create the draping and billowing of the fabric by the strong wind. Her garment reflects the heathery shades of violet symbolized by the god's purple wings according to the myth. This Waterhouse masterpiece will bring a sense of dramatic energy to any room in which it adorns, and will be the conversation piece for years to come. John William Waterhouse (born between January and April 1849, died February 10, 1917) was an English painter known mainly for his Pre-Raphaelite painting style. The artist drew inspiration from Romantic and Classical disciplines, as he developed a hybridization of these techniques over his lifetime to create some of the most hauntingly beautiful and enduring works of art. Color: multi. Frame Description: Metropolitan Pewter. Sleek Line Tall Frame with Pewter Brushed, Crackled Accents and Cream Semi-Gloss Finish. 23.5" x 2" x 27.5". Assembled in USAOrders cannot be shipped to Canada, Puerto Rico, APO, FPO or P.O. Boxes.
