Display caption

Gilman became friends with Sickert in 1906 and often attended the discussions and exhibitions held in his studio at 19 Fitzroy Street. Sickert’s penetrating portrait of his fellow artist reflects their close friendship during this period.

Sickert painted several portraits of his Camden Town Group colleagues. The bright colours and thin, dry application of the paint shown here is characteristic of paintings by members of this group.
