John William Waterhouse - Oil

A Hamadryad (1893) is an oil painting by the English Pre-Raphaelite painter John William Waterhouse. In Greek mythology, nymphs were any of a large class of inferior female divinities. The nymphs were usually associated with fertile, growing things, such as trees, or with water. They were not immortal but were extremely long-lived and were on the whole kindly disposed toward men. They were distinguished according to the sphere of nature with which they were connected. The Oceanids, for example, were sea nymphs
the Nereids inhabited both saltwater and freshwater
the Naiads presided over springs, rivers, and lakes. The Oreads (oros, "mountain") were nymphs of mountains and grottoes
the Napaeae (nape, "dell") and the Alseids (alsos, "grove") were nymphs of glens and groves
the Dryads or Hamadryads presided over forests and trees.
