Adopt a Watts

The Adopt a Watts scheme offers you the opportunity to have a personal association with a painting, drawing or sculpture by the 19th Century's most celebrated British artist, G F Watts.

You can exclusively 'adopt' any available work from Watts Gallery's Collection. In return, adoption is granted for five years and your name is engraved on a beautifully handcrafted plaque and placed on the frame or next to your chosen artwork.

Works of art are fragile and easily damaged. Your adoption will ensure the preservation and long term care of your chosen artwork and our collection as a whole, saving it for future generations.

If you are interested in adopting an artwork, please contact our Development Officer on 01483 901809 or email

How much does it cost?

The cost of adoption varies, depending on the type, size and significance of the artwork.
