Harold Gilman was born in Rode, Somerset, and attended the Slade School of Art, London from 1897-1901. In 1907 he met the artists W.R. Sickert and Spencer Gore, and became one of the founders of Sickert’s Fitzroy Street Group. This became the Camden Town Group in 1911, which included Sickert, Gore, Lucien Pissarro and Gilman. Gilman visited Scandinavia several times and was influenced by the light. In 1914 Gilman and Charles Ginner issued a manifesto, Neo-Realism, calling artists to return to painting from nature. An exhibition at the Goupil Gallery in London that year included several Norwegian landscapes by Gilman. In 1919 Gilman caught flu, after having nursed Ginner - both artists caught pneumonia and Gilman died aged 43.
