Isaac Watts (1674-1748)

See the archive catalogue  for a fuller description of the Watts painting.  At present we are raising funds to restore this painting but more is needed. It is on our list of 'high priority  conservation' works of art.  Clearly the Watts painting has a value far beyond financial considerations alone. It is of great cultural significance and we welcome your interest. 

Recent adoption:  The conservation of this painting has been achieved by donations from Annemyrthe Haas, Dr Alan Argent, Jane Giscombe, Lesley Dean, Peter Young, and the late David Hall.  However the great majority of the sum needed has been given by Prof. Donald A Cress of Wisconsin. 


Nicholas Byfield 1579-1622 (before and after conservation)
