Harold Gilman was the president of the London Group which emerged from the Camden Town Group in 1913. He worked on an idiosyncratic blend of Signac, van Gogh and Gauguin's style. He was a careful draughtsman and gave scrupulous attention to preliminaries. He mainly painted landscapes, portraits, and interiors with figures, always keeping the observation of nature in a firmly central position.
