    (May 31, 1860-January 22, 1942)
    Born in Munich, Germany
    Post-Impressionist painter
    Leader of the Camden Town Group of artists
    Known for his scenes of British music halls
    His first wife divorced him over his constant infidelity.
    At the funeral of his second wife, he reportedly threw some of her ashes onto the mourners.
    He had such a morbid interest in sensational murders that amateur sleuths have tried to finger him as Jack the Ripper.
    A recent biographer suggested that if Sickert were still alive, he would enjoy the notoriety from the Ripper accusations (2005).
    He was honored with a one-man exhibit at the National Gallery (1941).
    He influenced Lucien Freud and Francis Bacon.
    He was in France during most of the Ripper murders, which should rule him out as a suspect.
