Walter Richard Sickert (31 May 1860 - 22 January 1942), born in Munich, Germany, was a painter who was a member of the Camden Town Group* in London. He was an important influence on distinctively British styles of avant-garde* art in the 20th century.
Sickert was a cosmopolitan and eccentric who often favoured ordinary people and urban scenes as his subjects. His oeuvre also included portraits of well-known personalities and images derived from press photographs. He is considered a prominent figure in the transition from Impressionism* to Modernism*.
Sickert's father, Oswald Sickert, was a Danish-German artist, and his mother Eleanor Louisa Henry was the illegitimate daughter of the English astronomer Richard Sheepshanks.
