The largest retrospective of the artist Walter Richard Sickert’s work to have been held in the UK for more than 30 years.
Walter Sickert is one of Britain’s most important artists, with a career spanning six decades. Born in Munich, Germany, he moved to Britain as a child in 1868. As a young artist, he worked as an apprentice to the American painter James Abbot McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) who, along with the French impressionist painter Edward Degas (1834-1917), greatly influenced Sickert’s early work.
The exhibition showcases 100 loaned paintings and 200 drawings. The Walker holds 348 of the artist’s drawings, which is the largest collection in the world. Most of these have never been displayed before. Together, they demonstrate the varied, yet vital, role that drawing played in Sickert’s artistic practice.
A relaxed view ticket is intended for visitors with their friends and family, who may benefit from a quieter environment, including (but not limited to) those with autistic spectrum conditions, anxiety, additional needs or learning disabilities. Carers go free
