George Frederic Watts

Alison Smith, Tate Britain curator of 19th century British art, focuses on the work of the painter and sculptor George Frederic Watts (1817-1904) in this online resource, which is available on the Tate's website. The three paintings that form the Eve trilogy, `She Shall be Called Woman', `Eve Tempted' and `Eve Repentant', are considered together with `Hope' and `The Court of Death' in this presentation. This discussion looks at a group of Watts' paintings to discuss how they relate or correspond with each other. This resource is available as a video (which requires Flash to view it) or as transcripts. Clicking on each image provides a detailed caption for the picture. This resource forms part of the Tate's Learn Online section of its website.
