Tristan and Isolde with the Potion

 (click to enlarge)
John William Waterhouse
(English, 1849-1917)
Tristan and Isolde with the Potion, 1916
Oil on canvas

I posted another painting of the same subject awhile back, and you can read the story there.  Take a moment to enlarge the painting and notice how loosely it is painted, especially the background.
