The Lady of Shalott by John William Waterhouse, Tate Gallery, London.

The subject is from Tennyson's poem of the same name. Waterhouse was a follower of the Pre-Raphaelites and this can be seen in the style and subject matter of the painting. All around her is the tapestry she has woven of knights and Camelot.
