Title: A Naiad
Description:
 
John William Waterhouse (6 April 1849 — 10 February 1917)
A Naiad
Oil on canvas, 1893
Private collection

Also known as 'Hylas with a Nymph'.

Exhibited at the New Gallery's summer exhibition in 1893: "J.W. Waterhouse sent a "Naiad," the complement of his "Hamadryad" at the Royal Academy. The Naiad has left her blue stream to peer, between the trunks of the trees upon its bank, at a faun sleeping in the shadow of the wood."

"The Naiad has just risen, nude, the stream, and peers between the willow stems at a sleeping youth, who lies half covered with a leopard skin on the bank. Two green water-lily leaves confine the water-nymph's red tresses. Harmony of pink and green, relieved by blue light on the water. Large oblong picture."
( catalogue notes written by Henry Blackburn when the painting was exhibited at the New Gallery in 1893).
