Boreas Cross Stitch Pattern

$11.23 USD

Cross Stitch North Wind

How about cross stitching this gorgeous spring maiden, wandering the meadows with the north wind billowing through her headscarf and draperies.



Boreas cross stitch pattern is a replica of a 1903 oil painting by British artist John William Waterhouse. The painting was inspired by the Greek God of the north wind Boreas, as he sends a gust of wind through the draperies of a young maiden.

We think you’ll love stitching the textures of the maiden’s slate grey headscarf, the scattered daffodils, and her gorgeous glowing omplexion. Just awesome.

The Artist

John William Waterhouse was an English painter who lived between 1849 and 1917. He was famous for his paintings of Arthurian legend, mythology, and literary characters.

His paintings are incredibly lifelike, and we adore his natural backgrounds of wildflowers and mysterious water pools. Check out more cross stitch patterns inspired by John William Waterhouse here in our store.
