This melancholy painting tells the story of the Lady of Shalott, the subject of a poem by Victorian poet laureate Alfred, Lord Tennyson. The Lady of Shalott grows weary of her lonely life in a palace and sets out in a boat...Lancelot then finds her dead, declaring her beauty. If you take the time to study the detail in this piece you will be blown away by the realism and detail of everything from the waters edge to the birds to the intricate tapestry in the boat. We suggest stitching this one in tapestry wools, as the painting was done around the time of William Morris!
Optional Kit includes, in addition to the canvas, your choice of threads for the Half-Cross Stitch, needles and needle threader. Additional threads can be purchased for the Continental or Basketweave Stitch.
