He apparently mentioned it to his friends Max Beerbohm and William Rothenstein, and Beerbohm made a comment about Sitwell knowing the name of the Ripper, and writing it in a book belonging to Rothenstein (which was subsequently destroyed in World War II). By the way, while he and Beerbohm were friendly the latter would do caricatures of Sickert showing him on the edge of crowds sort of lurking. I just mention that in passing as odd.

The thing I found interesting about Sickert was that he rented an apartment he said was lived in by Jack the Ripper. I think the landlady is who told him and I'd love to know more about that.

Yeah. I'd love to know if Sickert's landlady ever went to the same dinner party as Mrs. Belloc-Lowndes.

No one who posts to this board is in any position to say that having more than a passing interest in a crime is an indication of anything.

'Chicken' was the nickname of the music hall performer he hired as a model from 1914-16, and who also featured in his rather nice series of girl-with-piano paintings, including 'Tipperary'.

Hi Ausgirl.

Many thanks for posting your thoughts and observations, or 'tother-way' round. I enjoyed this moment's thread as a poem of sorts with "horrible", and dark connotations, you are as sharp as the Ripper's blade.
Concerning the emotion expressing disgust we try to 'deal' withit within.
So, do you believe that Sickert scrawled the words, "Jack the Ripper's Bedroom", on the reverse of one of his paintings?

As Ever,
Rosey

What a strange thing to say.

Ausgirl,

Have you thought about my parting question concerning authenti-fication (That's a big word). I.E., What is and is not real?
I will relate a tale of Cosmo-politan perspective concerning a conversation in the major art gallery in Manchester, England, many years ago. Speaking with the senior conservator, I pointed out the Sickert painting entitled, "Venetian Blind", and requested it be photographed on commission for yours truly (Rosey).
Would you believe it... now, it was entitled "Jack the Ripper's Bedroom"! (See, "AtoZ"). Beware Realitycreep!!!

As Ever
Rosey

Sickert's name is often mentioned in connection with Dr. William Gull and John Netley

Mentioned by who?


This is all Stephen Knight, based on "Hobo" Sickert/Gorman's testimony. It is all now known to be nonsense. Joe Gorman later gave a different tale involving Lord Randolph Churchill.

That is not to say that Netley and his history as a coachman might not have been known to the Gorman family - but he was almost certainly not involved with JtR.

Netley and Gull also feature prominently in the 1988 Michael Caine TV mini-series - again not a reliable source I suggest.

Rosey, my - but it IS a big word! Quite a mouthful.

Manchester Gallery clearly need a smacked botty, if they can't be bothered authenti-whatsit-ing the titles of the works in their collection.

Perhaps they're just being twee.

Ausgirl,

Gosh, I still wonder about what happens with these items when they merge with the temporal flow, in general and particular. "A smacked botty" ! Erm, have to think about that.
If it is actually "Ventian Blind"...not so 'horrible' after all! End of psychology lesson for today

As Ever,

Rosey.
