Gather Ye Rosebuds While Ye May

Odon Wagner Gallery, Toronto, Canada

Gather Ye Rosebuds While Ye May is an oil painting on canvas created in 1909 by British Pre-Raphaelite artist, John William Waterhouse. It was the second of two paintings inspired by the 17th century poem "To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time" by Robert Herrick which begins:

Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old Time is still a-flying;
And this same flower that smiles today
Tomorrow will be dying.

The artwork was valued at $2.5 million by Sotheby's prior to auction in April 2007, although the painting went unsold.
