Camden Town Group is actually a number of English Post-Impressionist painters who got together with each other every week in Walter Sickert's studio in Camden Town of London.  During the period of 1911 and 1912, Camden Town Group organised a few shows at Carfax Gallery. The exhibition ended up failing in money terms, as a result, many member painters ultimately joined with a few other little organizations to shape the London Group.

Frank Rutter founded a association named Allied Artists Association in 1908, a group of people apart from the Royal Academy artistic communities and additionally modelled within the French Salon. There were plenty of the painters who turned out to be the Camden Town Group displayed along with Frank Rutter's Association.

The members of this group covered Harold Gilman, Lucien Pissarro (the son of Camille Pissarro), Wyndham Lewis, Walter Sickert, Robert Bevan, Henry Lamb, Augustus John and many others.

It is said that people can know the influences of Camden town group on many famous masters' artpieces, such as Van Gogh's paintings and even Gauguin's artworks.

In 2008, there was a significant retrospective of the group's oil paintings was hosted at Tate, London.
