The Camden Town Group of British painters chronicled the changes in both British society and the rapidly developing city of London in the years immediately before and during the First World War. The best known of the Group were Spencer Gore, Harold Gilman, Robert Bevan, Charles Ginner and Walter Sickert. All of them focused on modernity and metropolitan existence, in an age when the horse-drawn cab was being replaced with the motor-car, and which saw the development of new, utopian garden cities like Letchworth in the unchanging rural landscapes of Britain’s countryside
