Talk & Tour

Matthew Sturgis on - Sickert - The Theatre of Life

Art historian Matthew Sturgis will be giving a exhibition talk and tour of Piano Nobile's 'Sickert - The Theatre of Life'.

Eight decades after his death, SICKERT: The Theatre of Life brings together over forty of his figure paintings, including some of the most original works executed by a British artist in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Many of these works have not been exhibited since the artist’s lifetime.

The exhibition spans the full length of Sickert’s career, with paintings loaned from museums and private collections. Early works include his music-hall scenes and interiors from Venice and Camden Town. In addition to Sickert’s First World War masterpiece, The Integrity of Belgium (Government Art Collection), visionary paintings from the 1920s and ’30s will include The Plaza Tiller Girls – a group of works depicting Jazz Age dancers brought together by Piano Nobile for the first time.
