George Frederic Watts (23 February 1817 - 1 July 1904; sometimes spelled "George Frederick Watts") was a popular English Victorian painter and sculptor associated with the Symbolist movement.

Watts 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 (From Wikipedia).
