Curator Picture Talks - Progress


Free with admission

This ten minute talk will introduce the powerful young rider on a white horse immerging from a vibrant sun; a direct representation of 'progress'. Watts produced this figure to be enveloped in 'a golden glory along his path to the realization of the Divine ideal' positioned directly above figures of 'non-progress' such as a scholar and a rich man. Watt's provides a powerful representation of 'progression' in this beautiful painting, so come along to learn more.
