Published in conjunction with the exhibition curated by Dr Denys Wilcox: ‘A Fragile Beauty: Art on the Blackdown Hills 1909-1925’ at The Museum of Somerset, Taunton, 25 March-8 July 2017.

The Camden Town Group, led by Walter Sickert, was named after the London district where many of the artists lived and worked. Initially they painted contemporary urban life, but later they were drawn to the countryside, especially the Blackdown Hills.

Inspired by the example of the impressionists and post-impressionists, artists such as Spencer Gore, Charles Ginner and Robert Bevan created Somerset and Devon landscape paintings of great freshness and immediacy.
