Walter Richard Sickert was a German-British painter born in 1860. He is associated with the Camden Town Group and is known for his depictions of urban life. This portrait features Fred Winter, a sculptor and neighbour of Sickert’s who was the secretary of the New English Art Club. The seated profile pose against a solid background wall recalls the famous portrait of his mother by James McNeill Whistler, Sickert’s teacher. However, Sickert’s portrait is rendered in a more impressionistic style and is dominated by the vivid background, which flattens the space.
