Description

Alfred Wolmark, 
British/Polish 1877-1961 - 

North End, Old Hampstead; 

oil on panel, signed, tiled and inscribed on a sheet of paper attached to the reverse 'Alfred A Wolmark Old Hampstead (destroyed in 1940)', 36.2 x 26.2 cm (ARR) 

Provenance: 
Christie's, March 1985 (according to the label attached to the reverse); 
Louise Kosman, Edinburgh; 
private collection 

Note:
Wolmark was famed for his bold colour palette, influenced by French Modernism, and in an early exhibition in the 1910s at the International Society of Artists, his work was placed beside Vincent Van Gogh, as the only artist of comparable intensity. Wolmark exhibited at the influential 'Manet and the Post-Impressionists' exhibition at the Grafton Gallery in 1910, organised by Roger Fry. 

Wolmark has been referred to as the 'father' of the Whitechapel Boys. He was the only artist to be included in both the Whitechapel Art Gallery's 1906 'Jewish Art and Antiquities Exhibition' and in David Bomberg and Jacob Epstein's 'Jewish Section' at the 1914 exhibition 'Twentieth-Century Art: A Review of Modern Movements'.
