Gather ye rosebuds while ye may. John William Waterhouse (1849-1917)


New Waterhouse Found: An undiscovered Waterhouse painting was recently found in a Canadian farmhouse called Gather ye rosebuds while ye may. Experts estimate that it will sell for around $7 million when it goes up for auction at Christie’s in London in November. The title comes from a Robert Herrick poem:

Gather ye rosebuds while ye may
Old time is still a-flying;
And the same flower that smiles today
Tomorrow will be dying.
