If you are truly interested in the work of Waternouse get Hobson's book. There is very little price difference and it has normal pages sizes which beautifully reproduced photographs of the paintings.
The accompanying text is far more illuminating than the drivel printed in this book.
The most brilliant part of the book is the way that it was made with several close up pictures of small areas of a certain painting, followed by a one or two page reproduction of the painting as a whole. This is a wonderful way for the admirer of Waterhouse's art to notice intricacies of the masterpieces that are not clear to see in Hobson's book. Also, I believe the reproductions in this book are superior to Hobson's. The lines appear crisper and more defined in this version, and the faces seem more expressive because of it.
A definite find, and a grand addition to anyone's collection!! I was not dissapointed in the least by this little book.
paintings. Most of the paintings revolve around mythical
or poetic references which are explained in the appendix.
I am ordering my second copy so I can tear one apart and
use the pictures in crafts (like refrigerator magnets).
