As with all things which people term ‘new’ something or other, what exactly do you term what comes after? The ‘new new’ perhaps?. Anyhow, New English Art Club was a society of artists founded by English artist Walter Sicket (1860-1942). At the time, the Society was formed as a clear reaction to the very restrictive and formal way that the Royal Academy dealt with art and artists.
The group included Agustus John (1878-1961), and James MacNeill Whistler (1834-1903). Today the Art club is viewed as a precursor to the Camden Town Group.
