The Lady of Shalott-John William Waterhouse was an English Pre-Raphaelite painter who is most famous for his paintings of female characters from Greek and Arthurian mythology. Illustrating Lord Alfred Tennyson's 1883 poem, 'Lady of Shalott', Waterhouse's painting eloquently captures the Lady's wistful, doomed quality as she embarks on her final voyage to Camelot. She leaves her tower, finds a boat upon which she writes her name and floats down the river to Camelot. She dies before arriving at the palace, and among the knights and ladies who see her is Lancelot and he thinks she is beautiful. "Who is this? And what is here?" And in the lighted palace near died the sound of royal cheer; and they crossed themselves for fear, All the Knights at Camelot; But Lancelot mused. He said, "She has a lovely face; God in his mercy lend her grace, The Lady of Shalott".
Fabrics by their nature are flexible, during storage, humidity and temperature may occasionally affect their shape and also cause creasing. To help a tapestry hang better we recommend using a dry iron on a 'Cotton' setting. Lightly iron the tapestry from the centre towards the edges [on the face]. In very extreme cases the Tapestry can be stretched by pulling the panel gently by hand, diagonally.
