The Lady of Shalott. Maybe it was true, or it was just a legend but the amazing painting named The Lady of Sharlot, surely retells an interesting story. It is about a work of the famous English Pre-Raphaelite painter John William Waterhouse, who painted this painting according to Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s poem of the same name.
The painting actually tells the story about a young woman, of Elaine of Astolat who longed with an unreturned love for the knight Sir Lancelot, isolated under a secret curse in a tower near King Arthur’s Camelot. The Lady of Shalott was forbidden to look open at reality or the outside world, as an alternative she was doomed to see the world through a mirror, and weave what she saw into tapestry… A sad metaphoric story but the painting presents this story and the feelings related to it, incredibly and that’s why this piece of art is so famous and valuable, and probably that’s why it’s stolen!
