This past weekend, I had the pleasure of helping Tess with her booth at the Dublin Irish Festival. Throughout the weekend, we had several amusing encounters with inebriated people, and I choked twice on remembering names of Waterhouse paintings, much to my chagrin. Two especially amusing anecdotes..
The drunk guys who came up to the beautifully framed canvas of Waterhouse La Belle Dame Sans Merci and starting poking the canvas with their fingers, saying "the Pre-Raphs were freaking HOT. They were HOT!" (imagine said in a drunk voice)
The lady on Sunday who pulled out a print of Alain Chartier by Leighton, and said "it looks like they're lining up to kiss him!"
Also, Tess had a really neat cotton tapestry for sale, with art inspired by Waterhouse's Destiny. Check it out!
