Wadsworth Atheneum, Museum of Art

During William Holeman Hunt’s career, he illustrated three different interpretations of the “Lady of Shalott”. His most infamous rendition of the “Lady of Shallot” was painted over the course of twenty years using oil paint. This final art piece was displayed in the Wadsworth Atheneum, located at 600 Main Street, in Hartford, Connecticut. The museum was founded by Daniel Wadsworth in 1842, the same year that the "Lady of Shallot" was published for Tennyson's collection Poems. Although he initially intended to establish a “Gallery of Fine Arts”, Wadsworth redirected his course toward a more culturally based institution. The Wadsworth Atheneum displays art and artifacts that are dedicated to history, literature, art, and science.
