Waterhouse painting women

English painter John William Waterhouse (1849-1917) visits the Greek tale of the Argonauts, and inspired by the deathly adventure of Hylias with the nymphs, he lets the seven beauties take the young man forever again. The Victory of the Nature is combined with the harmony of the fatal destiny. The bodies are in the zenith of their irrational desire, yet the calm, so fin de siècle, reigns over the fall in Love. The elegance of these Victorian conception of Art send the colors to ready made rooms in our Sensibility. Maybe too soon…

Hylas and the Nymphs (1896)
