Born in Epsom, Gore studied at the Slade. He met Sickert in 1904 and was closely associated with him and Gilman. In 1911 he became the first president of the Camden Town Group. From 1909 Gore repeatedly painted this unfashionable street near Sickert's studio. This autumnal view of around 1911–1913 is one of several by Gore depicting the communal gardens in front of Mornington Crescent. Margaret Davies purchased this work in 1962.
