  1. John Everett Millais, Ophelia, 1851-52

    The image of Justine,  floating down the stream with her bouquet (i.e the protagonist and poster of the Melancholia movie), is inspired by John Everett Millais’s 1852 painting Ophelia. The painting depicts Ophelia, a character from Shakespeare’s play Hamplet, singing while floating in a river just before she drowns. The scene is described in Act IV, Scene VII of the play in a speech by Queen Gertrude.

    On view at: Tate Britain, London.
