G.F. Watts : the last great Victorian by Veronica Franklin Gould( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"George Frederic Watts (1817-1904) was a titanic figure in nineteenth-century British art. The father of British Symbolism and portrait painter of his age, he forged a controversial career that spanned the reign of Queen Victoria. This book, the first in-depth biography of Watts, sheds new light on the pioneering spirit and breadth of mind of the artist. Drawing on Watts's abundant personal correspondence and diaries and an array of other contemporary documents, the book chronicles the artist's career and personal life, including his friendships with Edward Burne-Jones, Frederic Leighton, John Ruskin, William Gladstone and Alfred Tennyson and his relationships with a series of singular women. The book also examines Watts's wide reforming zeal and political agenda as well as his role and dealings in the Victorian art world"--Publisher's description
G.F. Watts : Victorian visionary : highlights from the Watts Gallery collection by Mark Bills( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Widely regarded as a genius and as the greatest painter of the Victorian age, George Frederic Watts (1817-1904) was a ceaseless experimenter throughout his seventy-year career. He was not only the finest and most penetrating portraitist of his age but also a sculptor, landscape painter, and symbolist." "This illustrated book encompasses the work of his entire career, from his early self-portrait in 1834 and first exhibited painting in the Royal Academy in 1837 to his most iconic work, Hope, and the remarkable, almost abstract painting, Sower of the Systems, completed in 1903. In addition, the book includes historic photographs and archival materials, especially concerning the establishment in 1904 of the Watts Picture Gallery in Compton, Surrey, for the permanent exhibition of his art. Essays by leading scholars examine the artist's output, life, reception, and legacy."--Jacket
