Postman’s Park

I said PARK not PAT :twisted:

I can’t paint worth a damn myself, but admire a number of artists, many from the Victorian era.  One such is a fairly less well known artist by the name of G. F. Watts.

I was fortunate enough to be able to visit an exhibition of his paintings at the National Portrait Gallery a couple of years ago.  Through this and a chance conversation with a friend I discovered that he had created the Watts Memorial of Heroic Deeds which is set out in Postman’s Park.

Please take a wander over here, it’s utterly fascinating and if you’re ever in London a lovely quiet place to stop and think.
