The National Portrait Gallery has begun a project to catalogue its collection of papers relating to the nineteenth-century British artist George Frederic Watts (). A grant from the National Cataloguing Grants Programme for Archives is funding a project to describe the Watts Collection, which contains approximately 3, letters written.

As the name suggests, the artist's many idiosyncracies find echoes in the work of the Ferrarese Dosso Dossi, but his style also.
