Camden Town and the London Groups – Great British Art 1900-1925

The Fitzroy Street group was founded by Walter Sickert in 1907, and then followed the three Camden Town Group exhibitions (1911-12), where we see the art of Sickert, Spencer Gore, Harold Gilman and Charles Ginner. Finally, the setting up of the London Group in 1913, and its exciting early years with the two factions – Camden Towners and Vorticists – vying for supremacy, before Roger Fry, Vanessa Bell and the ‘Bloomsberries’ finally wrested control. Despite the period, there is very little war art, just a battle to express modern themes in a conservative British climate. Other featured artists include: Lucien Pissarro, Robert Bevan, Ethel Sands, Wyndham Lewis, Richard Nevinson, Mark Gertler, Duncan Grant, Paul Nash, John Nash, Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, Jacob Epstein and Nina Hamnett.
