          Original: Oil on canvas, 63.5 x 76.2 cm © Estate of Walter R Sickert 2011 All Rights Reserved, DACS

          Sickert painted this work during the early part of the first world war, and it has a pervasive atmosphere of strangeness and melancholy. A party of Vaudeville entertainers perform on the Brighton seafront under the setting sun and artificial stage lights. Many of the deckchairs are empty, perhaps hinting at the absence of so many men in the war.

          Artist details

          Sickert was one of the most influential British artists of this century. He had a direct influence on the style and subject matter of artists in the Camden Town Group and the Euston Road School. Sickert’s active career as an artist lasted for nearly 60 years and his output was vast, including many domestic interiors, portraits, townscapes and theatrical subjects, later basing many of his paintings on photos. He was universally acknowledged throughout his life as a colourful, charming and fascinating character, a catalyst for progress and modernity, yet someone who remained independent of groups, cliques and categories.
