Perhaps the most famous of Watts’s paintings is Hope (c. 1885-85, Private Collection), a favourite of many, including President Barack Obama. This masterpiece shows Humanity in the form of a young woman, sitting blindfolded atop a globe and playing a broken lyre. The idea of hope surviving beyond all odds has inspired people for over a century, and seven versions of the oil painting are known to exist.

Quote from artwordmari on #twitter... 'If G.F. Watts was 'England's Michelangelo', #Watts Chapel @WattsGallery is Surrey's own Sistine. Idyllic in the sun today.' #EnglandsMichelangelo opens tomorrow at 11am @wattsgallery.

Watts initially became famous for his fine #portraits of #Victorian celebrities, but it was his #Symbolist works that most influenced #abstract and #modern #artists including #Picasso and Lucien Freud and contemporary filmmakers such as Guillermo del Toro. One of his most striking Symbolic paintings, completed just two years before his death, is The Sower of the Systems (1902, Art Gallery of Ontario), which shows a mysterious robed figure in the process of creating the Cosmos in a swirl of colour.

Watts often incorporated Biblical themes into his art, and in 1868 he began a series of three images to tell the story of Eve, the first woman whose weakness, according to theology, brings sin, sexual shame and death to humanity. Watts’s version depicts Eve’s creation (She Shall Be Called Woman, 1875-92, Tate) as well as her temptation (Eve Tempted, 1868) and repentance (Eve Repentant, 1868-1903) using glorious colours though he does not show her expulsion from Paradise. Instead Eve remains there alone, longing to return to her innocent and peaceful beginning.

Watts gained his nickname ‘England’s Michelangelo’ due to his ability to work across media including painting, sculpture and drawing and due to his use of Classical themes. The sun is one of these recurring themes, and in Watts’s sculpture of Aurora (1850-75), goddess of the dawn, he represents ‘the fearless strength of the sun’s rays dispersing all darkness and gloom.’ Watts personifies the sun as a woman with an androgynous body in the tradition of Michelangelo.
