John William Waterhouse (1849–1917) is best known for embracing the legacy of Pre-Raphaelite artists – a group of English poets, painters, and critics who rebelled against the art establishment and the mechanic approach to art first adopted by Mannerist artists. Instead, Pre-Raphaelite artists took inspiration from Early Renaissance painting and Romantic painters, championing artistic individuality and individual methods of depiction.
