Modern painters: the Camden Town Group

Book Cover

Pub. Date:

The Camden Town Group of British painters chronicled the changes in both British society and the city of London in the years immediately before and during World War I. Extensively illustrated, Robert Upstone’s book investigates how artists Spencer Gore, Harold Gilman, Walter Sickert, and other members of this group reacted to the changing face of metropolitan existence. Published to accompany the first major exhibition of the Camden Town Group in twenty years, this book discusses how these radically modern artists absorbed and refined European influences, how genre portraits of working-class subjects allowed them to explore the relationship of the individual and the city, and how Sickert, Gore and Gilman created images of women that were more overtly sexual than the imagery produced by their colleagues in continental Europe.
