Visit to G.F. Watts Gallery and Chapel, Compton
The Spring visit was to the Watts Gallery and Chapel at Compton, south of Guildford, on Tuesday 25th March 2014.
There has been a two-and-half year restoration of the Gallery comprising the buildings and conserved paintings. It displays the paintings and sculpture of George Frederic Watts, the eminent Victorian painter, and is a centre for exploring that period of art, social history, craft and design.
The Chapel is an arts and crafts masterpiece designed by Mary Watts.
Those attending enjoyed an excellent visit, with a very good Guide and a number of us took the opportunity to go on the additional guided tour of G.F. Watt’s house, ‘Limnerslease’.
