Is this a new discovery?
A facebook friend posted a link to a google site I'd never seen - google art project. This is pretty wonderful. There are only five Waterhouse pictures, but thousands and thousands of other pieces. You can zoom in on very crisp photos and see detail that's far above anything you see in a book. Among the five Waterhouse was this version of Lamia, which I don't believe I've ever seen. It's in a musem in Aukland. There's no date on Google. Anyone have details? I can't seem to make the picture work here, so here's the address.
Here's the address. I can't make the picture work. http://www.googleartproject.com/collection/auckland-art-gallery-toi-o-tamaki/artwork/lamia-john-waterhouse/539076/
I wonder what else I may have been missing. I thought I'd looked at everything available. I'd seen the other lamia, and when I first saw this one I just thought - that doesn't look right! I was in Aukland years ago but didn't have time for museums on the trip. Now I wish I'd made time! I've been zooming up on the picture available on that google site. It's pretty amazing and I so want more! Where do you suppose they got images that large?
Thanks for the post, David. I don't think I've seen this version myself either. And such a clear image too! Great stuff :)
