This exhibition explores the work of the Camden Town Group and is drawn from the collection of Leeds Art Gallery, the largest public collection of Camden Town Group works outside Tate in London. The group, influenced by Post-Impressionism, painted in a dynamic and painterly way and explored the changing realities and conditions of Edwardian urban life. The group depicted social and cultural life in Britain, truthfully recording the surroundings and pursuits of the lower middle and working classes in the years leading up to the First World War.
