Known for his landscapes, music-hall scenes, and interiors. He also occasionally painted still lifes. He was the son of Spencer Walter Gore, the winner of the first Wimbledom tennis championship in 1877 and nephew of Charles Gore, Bishop of Oxford. He was an important member of Walter Sickert's circle and Gore's enthusiasm for his work helped Sickert to decide to return to Britain from France. He was a founding member of the Allied Artists' Association in 1908, of the Camden Town Group (in 1911), and of the London Group in 1913. His early work is impressionistic but his later work was influenced by the work he saw in Roger Fry's Post-Impressionistic exhibitions, employing flat, bright color and boldly simplified forms. He died of pneumonia in Richmond, Surrey, at the young age of 35. Comment on works: Landscapes
