Psyche: Miniatures Based on Paintings









Josje says: John William Waterhouse (1849- 1917) was an English painter who was stronly influenced by the Victorian neoclassicism and the Pre-Raphaelites. His most famous paintings represent scenes from literature and mythology. I have used one of his paintings 'Psyche Opening the Door into Cupid's Garden' (1904) as the inspiration for a roombox.

Waterhouse is my favorite and this is a lovely rendering! The draping of her gown is fantastic. Thank you for sharing this.
