Similar covers -- resolved

In this post I was discussing whether the same painter did the following covers.


I finally got it figured out. As you can see from the second picture, the artist of Seer of Sevenwaters is John William Waterhouse. Since I had one name, I did a Google search (I love Google) (no excuse me, it was Bing!) and my quest took my to Amazon.com. I looked inside The Red Tent (I also love Amazon.com) and discovered that Nancy Resnick painted its cover.

Mystery solved. And Catherine was correct, it is two different artists.

The mystery is still an open mystery. Found your blog looking for the answer to the same question. John William Waterhouse was a Preraphaelite painter. One of the most famous of the 19th century movement. Nancy Resnick is a graphic designer who used the painting in the cover design. This painting is of a very high quality. Probably another 19th century artist whose work wasa used for the cover design. As you see in the publishing/copyright page, Nancy did the design - different thing. Let's keep looking. Gorgeous painting.

Darnit. Thanks for pointing that out though. Apparently this English major needs to work on close readings...
