Walter Sickert (1860-1942), British

Mr. Sickert was born into a long line of artists and chose to follow in the family tradition. He moved to London with his parents in 1868 and studied at the Slade School of Art under Whistler. Rather than painting from life, Sickert painted from preliminary sketches, a tip given to him by Degas while in Paris, France. He was also part of a group of artists inspired by the dark and impressionistic paintings and engravings of Walter Sickert's, who worked in this working class section of London, know as The Camden Town Group. The group held three exhibitions at Carfax Gallery in 1911 and 1912. The shows were a failure in financial terms, and the member artists eventually merged with several other small groups to form the London Group. In additional to this, he painted portraits, landscapes and genre scenes. As a teacher, Sickert had tremendous influence on the twentieth century British artist. Mr. Sickert died in 1942.
