Born in Warsaw, Alfred Wolmark and his family immigrated to England in 1883. He grew up in the East End of London, and its Jewish life was the subject of his earlier work, painted in a realist manner. He entered the Royal Academy Schools in 1895, and exhibited with the Royal Academy between 1901 and 1936, as well as the Allied Artists’ Association (1908–1916) and the International Society (1911–1925). His first one-man exhibition was held at the Bruton Galleries in 1905. Wolmark’s work underwent a dramatic change around 1910, influenced by the first exhibition of Post-Impressionist pictures in London, and by a visit to Concarneau in Brittany. He kept to traditional genre, and transformed his subjects through the use of flattened forms, built up with a heavy impasto.
