William Holman Hunt The Lady of Shalott

1860, Oil on canvas
Tate Gallery, London
The picture illustrates a scene from a ballad by the romantic poet Alfred Lord Tennyson The Lady of Shalott

This lady lives near King Arthur's court; she is under a curse and must weave a tapestry of the view from her castle window which she is only allowed to look at through her mirror. When the handsome knight Sir Lancelot passes by, she looks at him directly: the curse descends on her. She dies in a boat which takes her body to Camelot.
