  • MURDER AND MODERNISM:
    WALTER RICHARD SICKERT
    and
    THE CAMDEN TOWN GROUP

    Presented by Nicola Moorby, writer, lecturer and former curator at Tate Britain, specialising in British art of the 19th and early 20th century. Nicola has published widely on Turner and on Sickert.

    Sickert was a major, influential 20th century painter and the Camden Town Group, of which he was a key member, was an innovative circle of painters united by the desire to paint works of a modern character.

    You are welcome to attend this exceptional lecture, on Tuesday 12 November 2019.  It will introduce the core members of the Camden Town Group, led by Sickert, and tells the story of their brief but significant association. The key themes of their work will be examined – urban life, popular entertainment and the lower social classes, and Sickert’s infamous series of paintings inspired by the notorious 1907 Camden Town murder.
