The Historic Galleries trace the evolution of George Frederic Watts' art over a prolific 70-year career.

Built to exhibit the work of leading Victorian artist George Frederic Watts, Watts Gallery first opened its doors to the public on 1 April 1904.

Upholding the artist’s belief that art plays a major part in the world’s wellbeing, today this Grade II* listed building continues to showcase the art of G F Watts. From his early work and social realist scenes to celebrated portraits and ambitious symbolic paintings, the Historic Galleries trace the evolution of his art over an extensive career.

Tickets will go on sale on Monday 20 July, only available online.
