Event description

Description

In 1886, Mary Fraser-Tytler, Scottish artist of 39, married George Frederic Watts, thirty years older, then at the height of his fame as a guru of the London art world in the last decades of the nineteenth century. He suggested she write a diary, which turned into a fascinating picture of their life together, and their many friends and acquaintances, inlcuding Ruskin, Burne Jones and William Morris. Dr Desna Greenhow has transcribed the diaries, 300,000 words in tiny writing, and, a year ago, edited and brought to light a delightful and interesting person, on her way to becoming an Arts and Crafts decorative artist in her own right.

Dr Desna Greenhow has been working on projects at Watts Gallery Artists' Village for the past fifteen years.
