The London Group, founded in 1913, was formed of an enlarged
Camden Town Group, the English Vorticists and other independent
artists. Founder members included Wyndham Lewis, Sickert,
Bomberg, Gaudier-Brzeska and Epstein who coined The London
Group name. Unusually for its time it had women members – from
The Group has shown at least once a year throughout its existence,
including during both World Wars and this is our third exhibition so
far in another full year. We are described by Michael Strain (Art UK,
Dec. 2017) as ‘A group of quality and great diversity. Most of the
great British artists for more than 100 years have been members’.
