The De Morgan Foundation

The beautiful Watts Gallery – Artists' Village in Surrey is the perfect setting for the De Morgan Collection. William and Evelyn De Morgan were regular visitors to the Watts Gallery, when it was the countryside studio-home of their friends, Victorian artist, G. F. Watts and his esteemed potter wife, Mary Watts, where the foursome would talk for hours about art and politics. The current exhibition of De Morgan ceramics and paintings, Decoration or Devotion?, asks visitors to consider the symbols and symbolism used by Evelyn De Morgan in her ambitious oil paintings, and by William De Morgan in his lustrous ceramics.

The Art Forum has been working in collaboration with the De Morgan Collection to research and record talks about the collection.

These are now available to listen to - a great example of young people's engagement with museum collections.
