I've just bought this hardcover book by Peter Trippi and I am impressed with the overall size of each color plates and drawings contained within this book. The color plates could be a little bigger to fit each page, but I guess that's just asking for too much for how many wonderful paintings and drawings are in this book already. Also the cover shown here on Amazon is not the actual cover, it's a cover of the painting "The Lady of Shalott".

This is an exhibition catalog, focusing specifically on the works in the exhibition. This might sound limiting, but the exhibition had a superb display, and this book catalogues all of the works in detail. A great introduction to Waterhouse, and a must-have for all fans of Waterhouse and similar artists such as Alma-Tadema. The work is large, and makes an excellent "coffee table" work. I have all other works on Waterhouse in print, and if I had to retain just one, it would definitely be this book.

This was an excellent purchase. I don't think this could be called an exhaustive review of his work, but it is an excellent, well-written illustrated biography. Included are photographs of his studio, the artist, himself, and many of his better-known paintings, along with sketches, studies, and images from painters that influenced him.

I found the book informative and entertaining. As a painter influenced by the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, I also found it compelling in a professional sense. For anyone interested in Waterhouse, or the painters who came after the Pre-Raphaelites and were influenced by that group, this book is highly recommended.
