The Art Book - Editors of Phaidon Press

And the final shout out goes to John William Waterhouse, who liked Tennyson (and had a more reasonable number of names and no hyphens):


The Lady of Shalott was one of the most memorable paintings I saw on my first visit to an internationally famous art gallery, The Tate Gallery, in London. It was in what is now called Tate Britain, where it remains, but I made my first visit before before Tate Modern opened. (There was a Jackson Pollock not far away.) By far the greatest (unofficial) Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood painting, in my view.
