	In hopes that I am not posting an answer that has already been
offered: The painting I believe you are referring to is "The Lady of
Shalott" (1888) by John William Waterhouse.  Happily enough, this
painting appears at the same site as "The Accolade".  Go to the list of
artists and his name appears at the end. There are a few choices, but
the 1888 version is the one I think you are seeking.

	FYI: I have been able to find copies of both of those prints as
well as "La Belle Dame Sans Merci" "The Magic Circle" and "Miranda" at
Michael's Crafts...(print and poster frame combined run about 35$/25 on
sale)  Hope this helps.
