Walter Richard Sickert

1860-1942 England/Post Impressionism

 

Brief Biography-Walter Richard Sickert was born in Munich in 1860. His family settled in England in 1868, and he first studied art at the Slade School in 1881. He subsequently entered the studio of James McNeill Whistler, where he did etchings. In Paris, he associated with Degas, who had a similar interest in theatre, and from there, he ventured to Venice and on to Dieppe for five years. In 1888 he was with the New England Art Club and became a teacher at the Westminster School. He was a Royal Academician in 1934 and resigned the following year due to a disagreement. Sickert preferred working from a studio rather than en plein air. Whistler and Degas were his strongest influences. His most noted works are interiors of London theatres.
