Waterhouse: Miranda The Tempest Jigsaw Puzzle

Miranda–The Tempest, 1916 by John William Waterhouse (English, 1849–1917). J. W. Waterhouse, R.A., was a master of narrative painting; whether drawn from history, myth, or literature, his works display an unerring feeling for the dramatic moment as well as a keen sense of composition and superb technique. Add to those qualities the haunting beauty of his female subjects and you have the apotheosis of great Victorian art. Miranda–The Tempest depicts the beginning of Shakespeare’s Tempest, when the magician Prospero’s daughter witnesses a shipwreck from her island of exile: O I have suffer’d/With those that I saw suffer! a brave vessel,/Who had, no doubt, some noble creature in her,/ Dash’d all to pieces! . . .
