  • About the artist
    Laura Sylvia Gosse was one of the first women members of the London Group of artists. The daughter of Sir Edmund Gosse, the essayist and critic, she was brought up among a formidable group of her father’s friends, including novelists Thomas Hardy and Henry James. Gosse studied art at St John’s Wood School of Art, the Royal Academy Schools and under Walter Sickert. Sickert was the primary influence on her paintings - mainly portraits, cityscapes and interiors - and she maintained a life-long friendship with him. Following Sickert’s death in1942 her own work continued to grow in strength and assurance until she was forced to stop painting due to failing eyesight in 1961.
