Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

George Spencer Watson (1869-1934)

He studied at the Royal Academy Schools from 1889, where he twice won the Silver Medal for Drawing in 1889 and 1891, and also the Landseer Scholarship in 1892. Primarily known as a portrait painter, Watson exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy from 1891, becoming an Associate in 1923 and an Academician nine years later.  He came from a wealthy family so could choose his commissions more freely than most.  This enviable position allowed him to enjoy the leisurely and decadent lifestyle of a country gentleman – free to hunt, fish and entertain.  Dorset became the centre of this carefree existence.  The coast of Dorset was a refuge and haven for the artist and his family from the pressures of London, while the house and its environs, where most of his best work was painted, became a source of inspiration.
