This is the first monograph to analyse the complex story of Camden Town painting and painters from 1905 to 1914. The climax of this story is the creation in 1911 of the short-lived Camden Town Group, whose members were Bayes, Bevan, Drummond, Gilman, Gore, Ginner, Grant, Innes, John, Lightfoot, Lamb, Manson, Pissarro, Lewis, Ratcliffe, Sickert and the amateur Doman Turner. However, the brief history of the Camden Town Group itself is here set firmly within its context, as an outcome of the earlier association of artists (the Fitzroy Street Group) founded by Sickert in 1907, and as the progenitor of the much larger London Group founded in 1913-1914 and active to this day.
Summary biographies of all the Camden Town Group artists and a full guide to the literature on individual members as well as to general art history of period are provided.
