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. [Our thanks go to the Odon Wagner Gallery for this information.]
