Sickert: A Life in Art

The Walker Art Gallery
William Brown Street
Liverpool
Merseyside
L3 8EL
Self Portrait, 1896 (oil on canvas). Walter Richard Sickert (1860-1942)

About

The exhibition will showcase around 100 loaned paintings and 200 drawings. The Walker holds 349 of the artist’s drawings, which is the largest collection in the world. Most of these have never been displayed before. Together, they demonstrate the varied, yet vital, role that drawing played in Sickert’s artistic practice.  

Sickert is one of Britain’s most important artists, with a career spanning six decades. Born in Munich, Germany, he moved to Britain as a child in 1868. As a young artist, he worked as an apprentice to the American painter James Abbot McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) who, along with the French impressionist painter Edward Degas (1834-1917), greatly influenced Sickert’s early work.
