The Lady of Shalott


Is there a painting or sculpture you’re drawn to? What does
it say to you? Describe the experience. (Or, if art doesn’t
speak to you, tell us why.)

The Lady of Shalot by John William Waterhouse

One of my favorite paintings is “The Lady of Shalott.” I think it captures how sad she is that she cannot live in the real world or have the love of Sir Lancelot. She doesn’t give up but she knows that he can never be hers. Oh unrequited love. . . sigh.
