Portrait of James Watts 1906 by Arthur Pinion © Stockport Heritage Services . It is impossible to properly judge painting quality from a reproduction. The mottled paint on James Watts’ face and hands may have been a skin condition, or more likely attributable to chemical instability in the pigment itself. The technical quality of the picture certainly does not seem to deserve the condemnation of Pinion’s work as “atrociously bad”.
