The landscape in this is stunning
It has often been claimed that a human skull is depicted in the foliage in the riverbank at the right..
one of my absolute favourites and never saw the skull in the riverbed before!

Great portrait of her tragic death
they called me the wild rose...
Sooo beautiful, yet morbid.
seeing this in person is mindblowing. the detail Millais put into this painting is amazing and no print can do it justice.
Vi essa pintura hoje e levei um susto. Meses atrás, num acesso de raiva, pintei em 20 minutos essa mesma imagem, apenas em outro plano: a mulher morta, com vestido longo, flutuando em águas escuras. A única diferença é que a que eu pintei carregava nas mãos o próprio coração. A imagem ficou tão assustadora que eu destruí a pintura.
I love this one!
The model, Elizabeth Siddal, then 19, became very ill because the candles under the tub of water didn't keep her warm. Is she also the model in Flaming June?

la primera vez que vi esa pintura fue en una readers daigest cuando tenia como 10 años y me encanto!!!! hoy a los 38 años la vuelvo a ver y la encuentro maravillosa
I'll never forget seeing this for the first time in the Tate in 1985. Magnificent work!
This painting has such realism, that it feels like Ophelia was brought to life and then died in this very painting, and her soul is trapped inside it. It captures, and forces you to look away at the same time. Enchanting.

All these Art Emperors live based on the death Artist’s Legacies with no doubt. While the Artist is alive, even they don't accept his/her call in any time. Please don’t give me wrong. you can test them yourselves. Mail them for a review or exhibition of your artworks, you will find your applications in a trashcan quite soon. They live in nice mansions or a House of Art with proudly call Art Galleries/Museums and the artists are suffering of poverty and struggling to pay the bills to live. Well. That kind of artist will be very lucky if he/she sells some paintings to those Emperors/Art Collectors, and they call him/her back in 5 to ten years if he/she is still alive or death. The good news will be if he/she is death to make some money but tons of money. They take your paintings and make their own stories about them and make them as an iconic painting and that is the time that their lottery matches for a jackpot. Basically, we all work for them for free. When they call their selves the Emperors, another meaning of that is the Slavery Masters. We create works of art until we are alive with no respect or appreciation and the end, they take advantage of them mercilessly. I am not venge it to discuss deeply but reality is the word of Lord. In the whole history of art, Mark Rothko was realized the exact meaning of Art Emperors which I am talking about.
