George Frederic Watts was a popular English Victorian painter and sculptor and was a driving force behind the Symbolist movement, commenting ‘I paint ideas, not things.’ Watts was in demand as a portrait painter and painted many of the leading figures of the time. He became famous in his lifetime for his allegorical works, such as Hope and Love and Life. These paintings were intended to form part of an epic symbolic cycle called the ‘House of Life’, in which the emotions and aspirations of life would all be represented in a universal symbolic language.
