JPES Partners is delighted to be sponsoring the JPES Partnership Prize at this year’s Open Exhibition, and we look forward to holding our own Private View with The London Group in June 2018.

The London Group was formed in 1913 by thirty-two artists from The Camden Town Group and English Vorticists, including Jacob Epstein, Wyndham Lewis, and Walter Sickert, with the aim of creating an independent artist-led exhibiting body to counterbalance the power of institutions such as the Royal Academy. Since its foundation, the organisation has been an integral force in contributing to diverse and emerging artistic talent across Britain. The Group’s mentoring and exhibiting programme has gone on to support the careers of many of Britain’s best-known artists. Paula Rego, Frank Bowling, Frank Auerbach, Barbara Hepworth, David Hockney, L.S. Lowry, Henry Moore, Graham Sutherland and Mary Fedden are among those who have benefitted from membership to The London Group throughout their careers.
