Walter Sickert: The Camden Town Nudes (2007) is a book on the nudes Camden Town nudes by Walter Sickert by Barnaby Wright, Lisa Tickner, Courtauld Institute Galleries.


This is the first publication devoted to Walter Sickert's remarkable group of paintings of female nudes produced in and around Camden Town between 1905 and 1912 and now considered to be among his most important and provocative works. Sickert challenged conventional idealized treatments of the nude by setting his female models in the murky interiors of cheap lodging houses, laid out on iron bedsteads, and painted with an uncompromising realism.
