G F Watts Gallery - The Rob Dickins Collection

"Watts Gallery has acquired an extraordinary collection of over 4,000 historic photographs from one of its trustees, Professor Rob Dickins, CBE. Consisting of images acquired from the collection of the late Jeremy Maas and Dickins’s own acquisitions gives a unique picture of the world that G. F. Watts inhabited and the figures with which he rubbed shoulders."
"The Rob Dickins Collection is presently being housed at the Witt Library at the Courtauld Institute in London where it can be seen by appointment. ...
The full collection is now available to view online as part of the Gallery's collection database."
