Helen Allingham @ Watts Gallery

21 November 2017 - 18 February 2018

Helen Allingham is one of the most familiar and well-loved of Victorian artists – in 1890 she became the first woman to be admitted to full membership of the Royal Watercolour Society and her work was highly acclaimed by leading contemporary critics, including John Ruskin. Despite this success there have been few exhibitions dedicated to her work.
This exhibition seeks to reassert the reputation of Helen Allingham as a leading woman artist and as a key figure in Victorian art. We will bring together rarely seen works from private collections together with important paintings from public collections, to demonstrate Allingham’s extraordinary talent as a watercolourist and as one of the most successful creative women of the nineteenth century.
