Paperback.  First edition.  Condition: very good.  ‘The Making of Mary Seton Watts builds upon the successful 1998 exhibition researched by Veronica Franklin Gould, ‘Unsung Heroine of the Art Nouveau’. Subsequent publications focus upon Mary’s decorative schemes within the Chapel, Limnerslease and the Compton Pottery. The books seeks to re-open discussions surrounding Mary’s early life and its impact on her later work.  This publication brings together two new strands of scholarship: one seeking to expand the knowledge and regard for Mary’s premarital life and artistic career, and the other bringing a new slant to the artistic pairing of Mary and G F Watts, in which her role is reassessed. Both approaches amend a view created by Mary Seton Watts: artist, designer, philanthropist, Slade girl and National Art Training School alumna.’
