Watson studied at the Scarborough School of Art 1884–88, at Lambeth School of Art and at the Royal College of Art (R.C.A.) 1889–94, where he won numerous gold, silver and bronze medals and was awarded a traveling scholarship to Italy.
Watson exhibited at the Royal Academy (R.A.) from 1896; member R.W.S. 1915; R.W.A. 1927; R.O.I. 1932. Taught at Regent Street Polytechnic from 1913.
Watson embraced En plein air painting, often capturing the effect of natural light falling to on to his subjects which gives many of his works an impressionistic style. His paintings Sunlight Reflected Upon a Wide Riverscape and Reflected Light are two examples which demonstrate his use of natural light.
His watercolour Across the River is in the permanent collection at the Tate Gallery. The Christchurch art gallery, Wellington art gallery and Brighton & Hove Museum & Art Gallery also have examples of his work. His work was part of the painting event in the art competition at the 1932 Summer Olympics.

Pair of bisque relief plaques by artist Bertel Thorvaldsen. Royal Copenhagen 1969 - 74Price: £40
Bertel Thorvaldsen (born Nov. 19, 1770, or Nov. 13, 1768, Copenhagen, Den.—died March 24, 1844, Copenhagen), sculptor, prominent in the Neoclassical period, who was the first internationally acclaimed Danish artist. Prominent in Roman intellectual and artistic circles, he influenced many emerging artists from Europe and the United States. Most of Thorvaldsen’s most characteristic sculptures are reinterpretations of the figures or themes of classical antiquity. The Alexander frieze of 1812 in the Palazzo del Quirinale, Rome, modeled in only three months in anticipation of a visit by Napoleon, is an example of the feverish energy with which he could at times work. Religious sculptures include the colossal series of statues of Christ and the Twelve Apostles (1821–27) in the Vor Frue Kirke in Copenhagen. He also made numerous portrait busts of distinguished contemporaries.
