Lot Essay

A landscape painter who worked in both oil and watercolour, Watts lived in Hampstead at the same time as John Constable. Despite being greatly influenced by his work Watts retained his own distinctive style, colouring and attention to detail. Watts exhibited at the R.A. between 1821 and 1860, and at the British Institution between 1823 and 1862. While it is not uncommon for Watts's work to include figures, the present lot is extremely rare in being a full-length portrait.
