Biography - Sickert, Walter Richard
1860–1942, English painter. After a brief career on the stage Sickert was apprenticed to Whistler and later worked with Degas. His preferred subjects were scenes of music halls and the London demimonde. Painting in deep, rich browns with vital, immediate brushwork, Sickert became celebrated for his personal and spontaneous works. He was a major link between French and English painting at the turn of the century.
See his posthumously published writings, A Free House (1947); studies by W. Baron (1973) and M. Lilly (1973).
