1 of 3

Artists associated with the Camden Town Group painted realist scenes of city life and some landscape in a range of post-impressionist styles.

The group is named after the seedy district of north London where Walter Sickert had lived in the 1890s (and again from 1907). Sickert’s series of Camden Town nudes and his paintings of alienated couples in interiors, such as Ennui, are his outstanding contribution to Camden Town art.

Other members were Robert Bevan, Spencer Gore, Harold Gilman, Charles Ginner.
