Watts 200: Monumental Murals
28 February to 5 November 2017
Colossal, sculptural and highly admired, two extremely rare murals were painted by Watts for private homes in the 1850s. For the first time ever, see the beautiful Apollo and Diana, which has never before been on public display. This exhibition will bring together this forgotten masterpiece with Watts's huge fresco Achilles and Briseis, which has been thoroughly restored.
Monumental Murals offers a unique opportunity to appreciate this most ambitious art form to which Watts was devoted, 200 years after his birth.
