A5 (21 x 14.8 cm) single postcard featuring La Rue Pecquet, Dieppe by Walter Richard Sickert part of the National Galleries of Scotland collection.
Sickert lived in Dieppe from 1898-1905 and periodically thereafter. He painted the church of St Jacques, seen here, on several occasions. The later versions of about 1907-8 are more freely handled than the earlier ones and feature a tree to the left of the portal, planted after 1900.
Walter Richard Sickert (31 May 1860 – 22 January 1942) was a German-born British painter and printmaker who was a member of the Camden Town Group of Post-Impressionist artists in early 20th-century London. Sickert was a cosmopolitan and eccentric who often favoured ordinary people and urban scenes as his subjects.
