Welcoming Spring with John William Waterhouse

John William Waterhouse

I can’t think of a painter who does “Spring” better than J.W. Waterhouse, and I’ve selected a few of his wonderful paintings depicting the season, or just young women and flowers.


For more Waterhouse, see my previous posts, below; and for an additional variety of paintings to celebrate spring, revisit Irene Gallo’s “Picturing Spring: An Equinox Celebration” on
