(1891–1939)
   English painter. Gertler was the leading member of the Whitechapel School in painting that emerged from Jewish life in the East End slums of London. In quiet colours and meticulous drawing he painted still-lifes, nudes and family scenes. His paintings hang in the Tate and other important galleries. Gertler committed suicide in 1939, depressed by ill- health and the rise of Nazism.
