Artist(s) Biographies:

Robert Bevan, friend of Gauguin from his stay at Pont-Aven in Brittany in the early 1890’s and linked with the avant-garde British artists working in London in the years before World War I, became a founder member of the Camden Town Group and the London Group. In 1915, with Gilman, Ginner, John Nash and Nevinson, he formed the Cumberland Market Group. Best known for his studies of London cab-yard and horse-sale scenes, after his marriage to Stanislawa de Karlowska he spent summers in Poland. Bevan’s retiring disposition and ineffectual marketing of his work during his lifetime meant that his reputation as a painter was slow to grow. It was only after his death that many of his works found their way into public collections, and a strong market developed among private collectors. Fine copy.
