From the Estate of Mary Millar Watt (1924-2023)

Mary Millar Watt was the daughter of artists, John Millar Watt and Amy Watt. She attended the St. Ives School of Art, but relocated to Bath during WWII where she worked for the Charts Department of the Admiralty.

After the War she moved to Chelsea to live with her parents, studying at the Royal Academy Schools between 1947-1952. Mary would go on to earn a living mainly as a portraitist, and flower paintings were for her own pleasure. She was a member and exhibitor with the Society of Women Artists, and exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy.
