EXHIBITION | 5th to 26th Jan 1929

The London Group, 26th Exhibition

New Burlington Galleries, Burlington Gardens, London, W1

We were first alerted by a Eurich collector that  Study for Portrait Decoration had been in the London Group's 26th exhibition, when he came across a review of the show in a 1929 copy of Connoisseur Magazine. At that time we thought there might be a second Eurich in the same show, because Richard had mentioned in his diary that Boy in an Indian Head-dress was in a London Group exhibition in 1929.

The same collector has now seen the catalogue and confirmed that there were indeed two works by Richard. One was Study for Portrait Decoration (Cat 90) but the other one was not Boy in an Indian Head-dress but Betty and Paul (Cat 181). So we still have to unravel what exhibition Richard was referring to regarding Boy in an Indian Head-dress.

Richard also showed work at The London Group in their 25th exhibition in 1927, and in their 1931 and 1934 exhibitions, which we do not have details about yet.

The London Group was formed in 1913 by an amalgamation of the Camden Town Group and the English Cubists (later Vorticists). They were dedicated to promoting the work of their members and to showing work by new artists through open shows where members and selected young artists exhibited together, hence Richard's inclusion. The Group are still very active today with about 100 members.
