(b Cannes, 4 Mar. 1878; d London, 6 Jan. 1952). British painter. He grew up in France (his father, a doctor, practised there) and settled in London in 1910. He was already a friend of Gilman and Gore and through them he was drawn into Sickert's circle, becoming a founder member of the Camden Town Group in 1911 and the London Group in 1913. His Continental background made him a respected figure among his associates, who were united by an admiration for French painting.
