River scene with cottage - Frederick William Watts - Framed Print - 16"H x 20"W

Frederick W. Watts was an English landscape painter strongly influenced by Constable. He has been known as "Frederic William Watts", "Frederick Waters Watts", "William Watts" or "William Frederick Watts".

There is a sparsity of information about this painter which has cast uncertainty over his parentage, training, and date of death. According to the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, he was born F. William Watts, in Bath, Somerset

IN 1817, as "William Watts", he is thought to have entered the Royal Academy in London, and won silver medals there between 1819-21. He exhibited at the academy from 1821–60, and at the British Institution from 1823-62. He also showed many paintings at the Suffolk Street Gallery and at the New Watercolour Society.

Watts lived in London, for much of his life and painted landscapes, "en plein air" all over Britain, having a preference for river scenes.
