This week Chelsea Eves, Heritage Projects Assistant, will be talking about Violet Lindsay - Watts' portrait of a female artist who was admired and revered by the likes of Rodin but has been all but forgotten today. This mysterious beauty appears to loom out of the canvas, her dramatic profile left unfinished by Watts, but why? Chelsea Eves, will discuss Violet's personal and professional life as well as her bond with G F Watts in this fascinating picture talk.
