The East London Group – a talk by Alan Waltham

The Higgins, Bedford, Castle Lane, Bedford MK40 3XD
In the 1920s, a group of working class men, including a haddock-smoker and a painter-decorator, began an art club at Bethnal Green Men's Institute in London's East End. What became known as the East London Group expanded and produced luminous, sometimes haunting, realistic paintings and attracted tutors including Walter Sickert.
