A sculptor's home

Wednesday, 22 July 2015

I recently visited the Watts gallery, home of Victorian sculptor and painter George Frederic Watts

He worked on this trolley, which he fitted onto railway lines so that he could work outside too! The completed bronze of the horse sculpture can be viewed in Hyde Park.

Watt's wife, Mary, also created this chapel in Art Nouveau style nearby to the Watts' home.

It is particularly inspiring as she gathered together the whole community, training many novices in new skills to create this highly decorative Art nouveau style chapel.
