The East London Group was one of the most innovative art movements to have flourished in the UK in the first half of the Twentieth Century. As a movement it bubbled up organically from classes at the Bow & Bromley Evening Institute in East London in the early 1920s, supported by an inspirational teacher John Cooper. A forerunner of the group, the East London Arts Club exhibited at the Whitechapel Art Gallery in 1928 with members work soon being shown at the National Gallery Millbank (now the Tate). The ELG were regular exhibitors at the prestigious Lefevre Galleries in the West End throughout the Thirties.

Our focus on Chimni is the work undertaken by ELG members to depict houses and street scenes. For a wider appreciation of the East London Group we would recommend the East London Group Website
