Seen in his day as 'the old master in the modern man', George Frederic Watts was the most remarkable British artist of the Victorian era, the first living artist to exhibit his life work at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The centenary of Watts's death is commemorated with a survey of his visionary painting, sculpture and mural designs, confronting issues of human existence, from historical pictures for the Palace of Westminster, stark scenes of social realism, mystical landscapes and mythologies, to transcendental allegories on themes of time and judgement, love and death, chaos and progress. A scholarly illustrated catalogue edited by his biographer and curator Veronica Franklin Gould, The Vision of G. F.
