Gertler, Mark Birth - Death : 1891-1939 Nationality : British
Born in Spitafields to impoverished Austrian-Polish parents, Gertler later became a famous “Realist” painter. He worked at 14 in a studio producing stained glass works and was then sent by the Jewish Education Aid Society to the Slade School in London from which he obtained a grant in 1911. At the Slade he mixed with C R W Nevinson, Paul Nash and Stanley Spencer and won many prizes. There he also met and fell in love with fellow student Dora Carrington, who became his confidant and muse as well as the object of his unrequited passion for the next ten years. Gertler's early patrons included Winston Churchill's secretary Edward Marsh and the indefatigable society hostess Lady Ottoline Morrel, who introduced him to many members of the Bloomsbury Group. Gertler's highly experimental work in the years of the First World War made an outstanding contribution to British modernism. During the 1920s he exhibited frequently and was a leading member of the London Group. Suffering from ill health and facing financial worries, he committed suicide in 1939.
