The Camden Town Group was a London-based society of sixteen artists who exhibited together three times in 1911 and 1912. The group encompassed a diverse array of styles and objectives, and ultimately disbanded due to artistic differences. Despite the brief nature of their alliance, their association heralded the absorption of European Post-Impressionism into contemporary British art, and witnessed a new desire for art to feature subjects taken from modern life. To mark the centenary of the group’s formation, this display focuses on one of their shared concerns, the important role in artistic practice of drawing.
