Spencer Gore was one of the most important English artists in the opening years of the twentieth century. In 1911 he was the president of the Camden Town Group, which was the seed of the influential London Group that would emerge in 1913. He studied at the Slade, where he met Harold Gilman and Wyndham Lewis, who were among the first members of the London Group.
