Two who knew

Wish we could find more anecdotes about WR Watkins’ life. These two comments come from the AskArt.com discussion board for Watkins:

“I studied under him at his home in Baltimore in 1967 and 1968. I remember him best for his pastels of rainy night scenes. I fondly remember having tea with him in his kitchen which was like sitting in a Delt teapot.”

“I remember meeting Mr Watkins & his wife while doing telephone work in his home (The Beverly Hills section of Baltimore) in the early 1970’s. My wife & I came back & bought a painting from him (The Pear Tree). That painting still hangs in our dining room. I remember him being a very kind & patient man.”
