Walter Sickert (1860-1942), a British painter, is famous for his depictions of the music hall, its artistes, audience and elaborate interiors and also for his views of Venice and Dieppe. Long regarded as simply a follower of the Impressionists, he has now come to be seen to have strong affinities with a wide range of artists from Hogarth to Keene, from 19th-century German illustrators to Rouault and Munch.;He embraced formal portraiture and idyllic landscape, controversial domestic scenes (such as "Camden Town Murder"), and portrayals of public figures, the canals of Venice, the old streets of Dieppe and contemporary scenes of England in the 1930s.;This publication is to coincide with, and serve as the catalogue of, a retrospective exhibition at the Royal Academy from November 1992 to February 1993.
