Study for ‘The Lady Clare’
Red chalk on paper
36.8 x 48.3 cm
She clad herself in a russen gown,
She was no longer Lady Clare:
She went by dale, and she went by down,
With a single rose in her hair.
Lady Clare - Alfred, Lord Tennyson
I am practicing master copies of every romantic Waterhouse drawing that I can find; Lady Clare has been a favorite.
note: Waterhouse was known by his family and friends as Nino.

The Woodpecker tapestry (designed) by William Morris, woven by William Knight and William Sleath in 1885, shown at the Arts & Crafts Society Exhibition in 1888.
The inscription on the original Woodpecker Tapestry was embroidered by May Morris (Morris’ daughter), and reads “I once a king and chief, now am the tree-barks thief, ever twixt trunk and leaf, chasing the prey” The quotation was taken from a poem by William Morris about an ancient fabled Italian king named Picas who was transformed into a woodpecker.
