From a large collection of work by Frances Watt which has been in storage in Aberdeen for 20 years. Direct from the artist’s estate. Many of the works are dated and inscribed but few are signed. The provenance is absolute, and everything in this collection is undoubtedly by her hand. Certificate of Authenticity available for each work.
She was commissioned by the Council of the Stock Exchange to record the daily life in the Square Mile. The City paintings she did were very highly thought of at the time. The paintings were featured in a set of postcards in the 1960s. During the 1960s her paintings and illustrations of the “old” Stock Exchange were included in the Stock Exchange Journal, the Times newspaper and the Lord Mayor’s Art Awards exhibition. Our collection includes views of Lloyds, the Royal Exchange, and The Discount Market as well. There are a large number of drawings done for the Times.
