Spencer Frederick Gore, often known as ‘Freddy’, was in many ways the most important of the Camden Town Group; it was he who with Walter Sickert gathered artists together to form the Fitzroy Street Group. He organised the Exhibition of the Work of English Post-Impressionists, Cubists and Others in Brighton in 1913, which marked the division between post-impressionism and what was to become vorticism. His career was cut short by his death from pneumonia at the age of only 35.
