1898 - ?

The London Sketch Club was founded in 1898 by some of the eminent commercial artists and illustrators of the day, the club is run entirely voluntarily. By 1903 it had established itself in permanent premises in Wells Street, off London's main thoroughfare Oxford Street. In 1904 it held a poster exhibition at the Royal Aquarium which introduced the work of the Beggarstaff Brothers to a wider audience. In 1957 the club relocated to 7 Dilke Street where it still meets. The Club is an historic private membersí club for working artists and lay sketchers from varied creative fields, meeting weekly to sketch and draw in a unique convivial atmosphere. It welcomes non-members to sketch on Thursdays.
