W. G. Simmonds. The Drowning of Ophelia.

The Drowning of Ophelia is an illustration from an edition of the play owned by the Huntington Library. The watercolor owes an obvious debt to the painting of Ophelia by John Everett Millais--including the almost identical vacant expression on the face--but especially striking in Simmonds's visualization is the white dress that billows over the water to suggest the wings of an angel.
