G F Watts - A Selection

All by George Frederick Watts OM, RA (1817-1904) - from top to bottom:

The Genius of Greek Poetry (late 1850s)

Love and Life (1882-93)

Endymion (1903)

Found Drowned (1848-1850)

Self-Portrait (1834)

All at the Watts Gallery in Compton. The reproduction of some on some of these postcards needs an awful lot to be desired. On top of all that, some of them are cropped in the most ridiculous way. That said, I think the self portrait is my favourite - and I like the fact that it is essentially an unfinished sketch.
