This solitary portrayal of Shakespeare’s young star-crossed heroine Juliet who strived to express the purity of her love towards Romeo - which was doomed from the start – is from perhaps the most famous love story ever written.
Juliet is pictured walking alongside a Venetian style canal. Waterhouse apparently made several trips to Italy where he found inspiration for his painting.
The soft, gentle line of his brushstrokes gives Juliet a dreamy, whist full and longing look.
