In the late nineteenth century George Frederic Watts was the first living artist to stage a solo exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and it attracted over a million visitors. ‘England’s Michelangelo’ was even described as the ‘greatest painter since the old masters’. Drawing on the extensive collection of his works, studies, sketches and paintings at the Watts Gallery near Guildford, art historian Chloe Ward takes a detailed look through the illustrious career of this eminent Victorian.
