Ophelia from Shakespears Hamet has inspired artists again and again over the ages.

The best known image is Pre-Raphaelite John Everett Millais version of the tragic heroin. Millais’s treatment of the model for the painting has become infamous, as he forced the young Elizabeth Siddal to lie fully clothed in a tub of cold water while he completed his work.
