The East London Group was formed from evening classes in Bow in East London in the mid-1920s. The majority of the members were working East End men and women. Walter Sickert mentored the group and the exhibition explores this link. Many of the Group’s iconic pieces will be on display, some of which have not been seen in public for more than eighty years.
