William Stott (1847–1900) was a leading figure among the group of British artists influenced by French naturalism in the closing decades of the nineteenth century. It was his painting Le Passeur that established Stott’s international reputation. With its decorative surface effects and enigmatic stillness, the painting came to influence the style and subject matter adopted by other British artists.  

Delivered in British Sign Language by guide Alan Murray with voice over interpretation, hearing loops and amplifiers are available. Please meet in the Manton Foyer.
