Frederick William Watts biography
Frederick William Watts was an artist who was greatly influenced by John Constable, and it is possible that he knew his great idol. For many years Watts was Constable's neighbour in Hampstead and doubtless attended his lectures held in the Assembly Rooms in June 1833 and July 1836. However, it is not known whether Watts and Constable met socially and it has been suggested that Constable was not well disposed towards his fellow landscape artists.

Indeed it was from Hampstead that Watts sent his first works for exhibition at the Royal Academy. These were the first of 76 paintings Watts exhibited at the RA, which, together with 108 at the British Institute and 65 shown in Suffolk Street indicate that he was a very prolific artist indeed.

Watts remained in Hampstead for 10 years before moving to Camden Town in 1831 and finally to Haverstock Hill 7 years later, where he spent the remaining 32 years of his life.
