Sickert in Dieppe

Pallant House Gallery, Chichester

NOW CLOSED

The British artist Walter Sickert (1860–1942) had a sustained fascination with the fashionable seaside resort of Dieppe in France. ‘Sickert in Dieppe’ demonstrates the artist’s vivid interest in everyday life in Dieppe, to which he was a regular visitor for over four decades and a permanent resident from 1898–1905. Over 80 paintings, prints, preparatory drawings, etchings, and archival materials show Sickert’s breadth of subject matter – the town’s architecture, harbour and fishing quarter, shops, café culture and inhabitants – whilst charting the development of his pictorial technique during this period.
