Walter Sickert - Queen's Road Station, Bayswater

Walter Sickert, Queen's Road Station, Bayswater, Oil on canvas, Around 1916

Walter Sickert (1860-1942) was the main exponent of the Camden Town Artist, a post-impressionist movement which mostly showed everyday urban scenes. The Queen's Road Station (now Bayswater) was one of the first tube stops and it the painting it is possible to see the first sample, diamond shaped, Underground logo. Still, super modern. 
Cool discover!
