The third exhibition of the Camden Town group was opened to-day at the Carfax Gallery. The group consists of the same sixteen members as it did last year. Mr. Spencer Gore is still its president. All are exhibiting at the Carfax with the notable exceptions of Mr. Augustus John and Mr. J. D. Innes – with whose remarkable work at the New English one must needs be content at the moment – and Mr. Duncan Grant. The Camden Town group may be said to control the output of the best English post impressionist work, and the Carfax to-day seemed like an annexe to the Grafton Galleries. Mr. Walter Sickert is so brilliant a draughtsman and colourist that one cannot take very kindly to a picture like his “Summer in Naples.” It shows a British navvy fully dressed and a dirty-complexioned woman with nothing to cover her at all sitting back to back upon a small bed in an East End of London attic. His “Chicken” is a pretty portrait of a girl, with nothing about it to suggest the poultry yard. Mr. M. C. Drummond, though in the forefront of the “advanced” school, does not trouble about being obscure. Rather he makes a painful effort in the opposite direction. His “St. James’s Park” could be recognised by any child of London, for all that his Whitehall Court, War Office, and Horse Guards are [q]uite out of drawing and painted in some pale green Liberty art shade, and in spite of his lake being like a skating rink and one gentleman in the little group upon its margin being dressed in an overcoat of pillar-box red. Close by are Mr. H. Lamb’s two portrait studies. One cannot help wondering why this artist is permitted to belong to the group. His work is beautiful, clean and ordinary. One comes suddenly upon these two heads in the midst of a wall covered almost entirely with sticky messy riddles, and one finds perfect drawing and feeling and modelling. The effect is very strange. Nearly all the members show interesting work, and here and there, in spite of themselves apparently, it is beautifu land [sic] intelligible. There is Mr. J. B. Manson’s “Moonlight and Snow,” for example, Mr. Lucien Pissarro’s “Stamford Brook Green (Snow),” Mr. S. F. Gore’s “The Pond,” and others. Mr. W. Bayes is always pleasing, he is not typically Camden Town.
