This is an exhibition of the paintings by W.R. Sickert (1860–1942) in the national collection. The paintings span half a century, taking us from the end of the nineteenth century up to the Second World War, when he was working mainly from photographs. By including loans related to the Tate works, the exhibition seeks to illustrate Sickert’s method of working through drawings and then photographs.
