David Bomberg was inspired to paint by going to Walter Sickert’s evening classes. He was a bold and original student. Early in his career he became friends with many of London's exciting young artists. These included Harold Gilman and Paul Nash. In 1913 he visited Paris with Jacob Epstein and met Picasso. Bomberg taught many successful artists but his own work was overlooked during his lifetime.
