The members of the “Camden Town Group,” who are holding their third exhibition at the Carfax Gallery, in Bury-street, St. James’s, belong, like the Johannites of Chelsea, who were referred to in this column last week, to the advance guard, but, with one or two exceptions, their sympathies are with the Impressionists rather than with the Primitives. One of these exceptions is Mr. Walter Bayes, who really stands quite apart from the rest. He is above all a decorator – an artist concerned with the rhythmic spacing of his design in a harmonious pattern of delicate colour. There is something of classic severity in his design, although it has nothing of the artificiality of classicist art. It is difficult exactly to define the quality that is so attractive in his pictures. Perhaps it is that, with all the thought given to the rhythmic arrangement of the material, and in spite of the deliberate suppression of plastic relief, they never look like studio inventions. It is as though Nature had presented the pattern to him ready made, and not as if he had imposed his idea of decorative pattern upon Nature. “Le Petit Casino,” “Shade” and “Port” have a distinction, a refinement, a lucid clearness, that are but rarely found in modern art.
