J.W. Waterhouse at the Royal Academy

This retrospective exhibition was wonderful. My favourite is below, Hylas and the Nymphs. Apart from the obvious charms of the nymphs, the main nymph has an amazingly powerful gaze fixed on Hylas. Waterhouse has a wonderful sense of costume colour and texture. Jackie came with us from Littlehampton, and we met up with Bea and young Amy who travelled from Eastbourne. We enjoyed sad sandwiches in the Academy courtyard. Osca’s fish & chips completed the day.
