  • About the artist
    Spencer Frederick Gore was inspired by Gauguin and Cezanne, having seen their work at the first Post-Impressionist exhibition organised by Roger Fry in 1910 at the Grafton Gallery in London. Gore was born in Epsom, Surrey and studied at the Slade School of Art from 1896-99 where he became friends with Harold Gilman (1876-1919). Like Gilman, Gore was a founder member of two artists’ groups formed in London at the instigation of Sickert: the Fitzroy Group created in 1907 and its successor the Camden Town Group, of which Gore was the first president in 1911. In 1914 he took part in the first London Group exhibition and also caught pneumonia while out painting in a rainstorm in Richmond Park, and died shortly after.
