    George Frederick Watts, (born Feb. 23, , London—died July 1, , Compton, Surrey, Eng.), English painter and sculptor of grandiose allegorical believed that art should preach a universal message, but his subject matter, conceived in terms of vague abstract ideals, is full of symbolism that is often obscure and today seems superficial.   Laurence Binyon, writing in on the exhibition that matched The Red Book with works by John Everett Millais and George Frederick Watts, mused upon the fact that 'the dead fair women who most bewitched their world and time perplex us often in their portraits' (Laurence Binyon, 'Fair Women and Other Pictures', The Saturday Review, 28 March.

      According to Mrs Watts, the artist's widow, the picture was completed before , and it may in fact date from the late s. It shows him in quasi-Pre-Raphaelite mode, and reflects his association with Rossetti and Burne-Jones at Little Holland House in Kensington, where Watts himself held the unofficial post of Mrs Prinsep's genius-in.

The Watts Story. George Frederic Watts OM, RA ( – ) was widely considered to be the greatest painter of the Victorian era. A portraitist, sculptor, landscape painter and symbolist, Watts's work embodied the most pressing themes and ideas of the time, earning him the title England's Michelangelo.

Another great painter who survived him but a few days, George Frederick Watts, once said, "Some artists see, some feel, some imagine — the greatest do all," and Sandys not only saw and imagined, he felt as well. He was able, too, to visualise his ideals, to realise his dreams, and to render them with that un- erring touch, that resolute.

Some years earlier Sandys had copied a portrait by Rogier van der Weyden (Frederick Sandysexh. cat., Brighton Museum and Art Galleryno, pl.2) and he toured Belgium and Holland the year after painting 'Oriana'.

The landscape background of the painting contains at least one reference to Sandys's native city of Norwich.

According to Veronica Gould in her book G. F. Watts: The Last Great Victorian the woman depicted is the Prinseps’ French maid.(1) Watts met the Prinseps in the late s when he was living and working near Berkeley Square in Mayfair.

Sara Prinsep and her husband, Thoby, a retired East India Company official lived nearby.Widely regarded as a genius and as the greatest painter of the Victorian age, George Frederic Watts (–) was a ceaseless experimenter throughout his seventy-year career.

He was not only the finest and most penetrating portraitist of his age but also a sculptor, landscape painter, and symbolist. This beautifully illustrated book encompasses the work of his entire career, from his early.
