A Mermaid by J W Waterhouse 

Following a recent post regarding the best-loved Pre-Raphaelite paintings, the following are suggestions collected from your comments here, and from friends on Twitter and Facebook. The VV is very happy that so many of you chose work by J W Waterhouse - a current favourite of her own, even though he is not strictly a Pre-Raphaelite, being of the next generation. But his work is definitely in 'the mode'.
