Judge's Comments: Who doesnít love Waterhouse? And arenít we all Pre-Raphaelites at heart? This work makes one remember the romantic possibilities of paint, and appreciate watching the magic a subtle, masterful sense of design can bring to a piece (just ponder those shadowy spaces a moment, and note how they lock the highlights into place). I also like the proportions - the aspect ratio is very much akin to how we, as humans, see. - Charlie Hunter
