One of Britain’s most significant artists, WALTER SICKERT produced a mass of influential work that seamlessly captured human experience in 20th century Britain. Sickert was a unique painter with an eye for detail as he sought to record the reality of society. His career spanned over six decades, with hundreds of pieces of art created in his path. Sickert’s archive of unseen work will be showcased in a unique exhibition this Autumn, with 300 paintings and drawings set to be displayed simultaneously for the first time. Positioned together, the artist’s extensive selection of work chronicles his consistent need to adapt and reinvent his work, as he drew inspiration from fellow influential artists and photographs throughout his career.
