Waterhouse in Groninger

John William Waterhouse - Saint Cecilia (1895)Oh to be in Groninger now that many of the paintings of John William Waterhouse are there, borrowed from England, the USA, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Australia, Taiwan and Canada for the "largest-ever retrospective" of his work. Er ... where? Groninger ... the Groninger Museum to be precise ... er ... The Netherlands. Oh. J.W. Waterhouse (1849-1917), The Modern Pre-Raphaelite features 92 of Waterhouse's paintings, drawings and sketchbooks, few of which have ever been seen in continental Europe. The exhibition includes this gem Saint Cecilia (1895) and runs until 3 May 2009 (title link). The Royal Academy of Arts helped organise it. So, will it be coming to London next year? Rest assured, if I spot it, I'll let you know.

This marvelous exhibition will absolutely be coming to London next year. And Arts and Crafts Tours has organized a week's worth of related events, including a private tour of the exhibition with the co-curator, Peter Trippi. See their website: www.artsandcraftstours.com or contact them at artsandcraftstours@gmail.com
