Ophelia is my favourite painting. I came across with it during my Art History studies. I was already a fan of the Pre-Rhaphaelites and when I saw it for the first time my heart skipped a bit. Every flower, every plant have a meaning, the loyalty Millais showed to Hamlet and to the beautiful model Elizabeth Siddal. I wrote about three papers about this painting and I can go on more and more. The moment I saw it with my own to eyes at Tare Britain was a moment I'll never forget. I can't wait to be able to pay a visit to it again.
