Frederick Watts was a famous and successful late Victorian painter. His studio has been preserved as the Watts Gallery. His wife, Mary Watts, had a neo-Byzantine Art Nouveau chapel built for him, largely using the labour of local residents who attended her Arts and Crafts pottery workshop. Originally from Scotland, she also produced ceramic tombstones and garden paraphernalia based on medieval Celtic art, commercially, and Celtic inspired designs for Liberty carpets that were then handwoven in Donnegal. This photograph, pinched from the photographer Andrew Finney, of the chapel was too gorgeous to pass up although it does not do justice to the Art Nouveau influences, including the almost Glasgow ” Spook School“ style of the figures.
