A public lecture conducted by the Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Society, Toowoomba
Walter Sickert and the Camden Town Group
Walter Sickert was a leader of a group of English artists living and working in the Camden Town area of London prior to and during the First World War. This group of post-impressionist painters, known as the Camden Town Group, drew their subjects from the common life of the area including music-halls, simple accommodation, new suburbs and everyday work. Sandra Pollard will explore the contribution these artists made to the development of modern art in a lecture she will present for the Toowoomba Group of the Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Society (ADFAS) on 13 September.
