About

GOSSE was the most talented of Sickert’s pupils in etching. She specialised in interiors with figures, often of women sitting, standing, lying or lolling. Gosse first met Sickert in c.1908 at her family home in London. Her father was the eminent poet, author and critic, Sir Edmund Gosse. Sickert was one of a number of distinguished figures who frequented the house. Sylvia Gosse hero-worshipped Sickert (who was 20 years her senior) and Sickert encouraged her to study etching. She remained a devoted and supportive friend to Sickert for the rest of his life.
