Henry Nelson O'Neil. Ophelia, 1874.

Oil on canvas.

The details, in particular the dress Ophelia wears, are brilliantly executed, but O'Neil so obviously alludes to Redgrave and Hughes that he offers little that is new. O'Neil had done an earlier painting of Ophelia and Laertes that was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1852, the same year that Hughes and Millais showed their paintings of Ophelia.
