G. F. Watts (1817-1904) was one of the most celebrated painters of the Victorian era, yet his masterful drawings have never before been studied. This talk will present new scholarship on the drawings in the Watts Gallery collection, which contains over 800 of Watts’s works on paper. From the extraordinary chalk copies made when he was only ten years old to the virtuosic presentation drawings produced at the height of his career, Watts’s technique and creativity make him one of the nineteenth century’s greatest draughtsmen.

All are welcome! However, places are limited, so if you would like to attend please contact our Events Co-ordinator, Ella Fleming on events@paul-mellon-centre.ac.uk
