French Connections and the Camden Town Group

Saturday 13 June 2020, 10.00AM to 4.30pm

The Camden Town Group painters organised only three exhibitions between 1911 and 1914, but their legacy can be seen in works by artists today. Their focus on the underbelly of London society reveals fascinating insights into Edwardian society. Worn and shabby interiors stage subversive images of the nude or bold representations of class while the use of heightened colours reveals innovative responses to both French Impressionism and Post-Impressionism. This course will explore works by artists including Gilman, Gore, Sickert and Degas and will consider how French and British art of this modern dynamic period are distinct and dynamic.
