    OIL PAINTING : Vanity , c.1910

          The image of Vanity, a beautiful woman admiring herself in a mirror, is found in European Art from the time of the middle ages. It is an ambiguous image because the spectator is invited both to admire and to disapprove. In this haunting painting, John William Waterhouse surely intends admiration to be paramount. The painting reinterprets such paintings as Titians 'The Toilet' (Louvre) and Rossetti's 'Lady Lilith' (Delaware Art Museum, Wilmington) with a new sense of immediacy. On looking at it, the first impression is not of its place in an artistic tradition, but the spontaneity and naturalness of the woman's gesture.

    SPECIAL NOTE : The painter will make the reproduction as close to the original oil painting as possible. If you want your painting to alter from this likeness, please email us and " Vanity , c.1910 " will be reproduced according to your special requirements.
