"John William Waterhouse (6/4/1849 – 10/2/1917) was Rachael's favourite artist. He was a Romantic artist in the truest sense. His passion for a natural setting and his
love of strong and beautiful female figures made his work truly unique and extremely popular with his patrons. His paintings of classical and mythical scenes show a true mix between Neoclassical themes and Romantic style which would develop through other artists
in the rest of the 19th century."
