Malcolm Drummond (1880-1945)

Portrait of Charles Ginner

Drummond developed close friendships with Bevan, Gore and Ginner. Ginner had proposed Drummond for membership of the Camden Town Group. The two had much in common, both were admirers of Van Gogh and were interested in pattern, colour and vigorously applied paint.

Although his friends described Ginner as looking like a bank manager with his round, bald head, Drummond portrays his fellow artist as relaxed and dapper, leaning nonchalantly, cigarette in hand. One of Ginner's Van Gogh-inspired paintings appears on the wall behind him.
