Art History Mornings at The Beecroft Gallery
Saturday 29th June, 10.30am-12.30pm
with Dr ML Banting
The Camden Town Group
Named after the area in north London in which Walter Sickert lived and painted, the Camden Town Group was formed in the wake of the Post-Impressionist Exhibition. As we’ll explore today, the Camden Town artists painted mainly urban and suburban scenes, exploring the modern world, everyday life, class and gender and often experimenting with brilliant colour.
