Want a Waterhouse original?
....and one of his most famous artworks? Got a spare $800,000?
If I won the lottery in the next week (which is unlikely, since I don't even play), I would SO fly to New York and run away with this painting.
J.W. Waterhouse's Miranda - the Tempest is going up for auction at Sotheby's in New York on April 24th. For anyone close to New York, the artwork will be available to view in person prior to the auction:

If you don't live near New York, the above link will still take you to an image of the artwork. You can zoom in and see a great amount of detail on this masterpiece of Waterhouse's career.
