The De Morgan Foundation
Watts Gallery is fortunate to host a display of ceramics and oil paintings by William and Evelyn De Morgan. Bringing together richly decorated ceramics by William De Morgan with visionary symbolic paintings by his wife, Evelyn, this sumptuous display showcases the artistic achievements of this extraordinary creative partnership.
The De Morgans were close friends with the Wattses and were regular visitors to Limnerslease as well as collaborating with them on several projects.This display celebrates that friendship and marks the launch of a partnership between Watts Gallery – Artists' Village and the De Morgan Foundation that will help to establish an internationally important centre where visitors and students can explore Victorian art, social history, craft and design.
