Pyle's second commission to illustrate a book, after Yankee Doodle, published the same year. “The Lady of Shalott, designed in the rather florid Art Nouveau style enjoying popularity in England, was quite unlike any other color ilustration that Pyle ever did, and … it is an interesting period piece with more vigor and invention than most British illustration of the time” (Pitz).
