The Lady of Shalott December 11 2014
This is one of my most favorite paintings by the wonderful John William Waterhouse, and one of the most popular pieces in the Tate Gallery in London, where I was lucky enough to see it in person. We were so excited to adapt it to needlepoint! Since the painting hangs in our house we decided to do a comparison, so check them out side by side!
This one would look beautiful done in wool as a wall hanging. Plus, I like the idea of Waterhouse's Lady of Shalott being stitched as a tapestry, since both he and his contemporary William Morris (who made tapestry popular) were heavily influenced by Arthurian legend.
