the curse is come upon me

I have a new icon, for those who notice such things. It's from one of my favourite paintings, one of Waterhouse's many depictions of 'Lady of Shalott'. I first saw this painting in an Edwardian magazine in my great aunt's house, when I was about 14, and fort some reason it totally grabbed me. Alas, I couldn't remember who painted it afterwards, and the magazine somehow disappeared, so it took me years to rediscover the painting (doing a History of Art degree and focussing on 19th century painting for a year helped). Studying the pre-Raphaelites properly tends to rob the movement in general and the vast majority of the artists of much of their charm, but I still adore this painting. The Lady of Shalott in it reminds me of me...
