Find out about art in Edwardian Britain
The Camden Town Group held just three exhibitions in 1911–12, but its name has become synonymous with a distinctive period in the history of British art before the First World War.
Named after the area of north London where a number of the artists lived and worked, the group aimed to reflect the realities of modern urban life.
Read about the life and work of painters such as Spencer Gore, Harold Gilman and Walter Sickert in Tate’s collection and explore how their works relate to broader social and cultural aspects of the Edwardian period and later.
