The Soul of the Rose

The Soul of the Rose
John William Waterhouse
One of John William Waterhouse's best known works, The Soul of the Rose was successful for the artist and remains one of his best known pieces to date. The romantic sensibilities of the painting and the sense of melancholy within the central figures' face allow it to embody the beliefs and stylistic notions of the Romantic period.

The artist draws the viewer to the women's face and her sense of longing as she smells the rose. The delicacy of the woman's form and in particular her hand contrast to the dominance of the walls surrounding her, further emphasizing the idea of repressed femininity.
