A Mermaid - J.W. Waterhouse

Waterhouse again, The Lady of Shalott:



"The Lady of Shalott is one of John William Waterhouse's most famous works, an 1888 oil-on-canvas painting of a scene from Tennyson's poem in which the poet describes the plight of a young woman, loosely based on the figure of Elaine of Astolat from medieval Arthurian legend, who yearned with an unrequited love for the knight Sir Lancelot, isolated under an undisclosed curse in a tower near King Arthur's Camelot. Waterhouse painted three different versions of this character, in 1888,1894 and 1915." - Wikipedia

I know what you mean. The idea of human combined with animal is basically grotesque. But somewhow, in the case of mermaids and maybe centaurs, it has become romanticised. Since it's your thread, I won't post any more mermaids Very Happy

Two beautiful paintings by Pierre Auguste Renoir,  one of my favorite artists.

He is expert at capturing human facial expressions and emotion
The pastel colors are very pleasing, so soft and feminine.
