Waterhouse Echo and Narcissus Postcard
John William Waterhouse Echo and Narcissus postcard. Oil painting on canvas from 1903. Pre-Raphaelite artist John Waterhouse frequently depicted scenes from Greek mythology in his paintings. Echo and Narcissus is one of the painter’s most famous works. Within a lush landscape of verdant trees and daffodils, Echo sits next to a stream admiring the young Narcissus. The boy has become enraptured by his own reflection, and stares longingly into the water draped with a red robe with his arrows and straw hat nearby. Echo herself wears a red flower in her dark brown hair and a pink sash. A great gift for fans of J.W. Waterhouse, the Pre-Raphaelites, Romantic English art, and mythological painting.
