Artistul britanic Harold John Wilde Gilman (11 februarie 1876 – 12 februarie 1919) a fost un pictor de interioare, portrete si peisaje, si membru fondator al grupului Camden Town Group.

Cu toate ca s-a nascut in Rode, Somerset, Gilman si-a petrecut primii ani in Snargate Rectory, in Romney Marshes din Kent, unde tatal lui era Rector. A fost educat in Kent la scolile Abingdon, Rochester si Tonbridge, iar pentru un an la Brasenose College de la Oxford University.

Desi a aratat un interes in arta in timpul unei perioade de convalescenta din copilarie, Gilman nu a inceput pregatirea artistica pana dupa primul an de dupa colegiu la Oxford University (scurtat din cauza bolii) si dupa ce a lucrat in Ucraina ca tutor la o familie britanica in Odessa (1895). In 1896 a intrat la Hastings School of Art pentru a studia pictura, insa in 1897 s-a transferat la Slade School of Fine Art din Londra, unde a ramas din 1897 pana in 1901, si unde l-a cunoscut pe  Spencer Gore. In 1904 a plecat in Spania si a ramas peste un an pentru a-i studia pe maestrii spanioli (Velázquez si Goya, precum si Whistler).

In acea perioada a cunoscut-o si s-a casatorit cu pictorita americana Grace Cornelia Canedy. Cei doi soti s-au stabilit in Londra.Au avut doua fiice (una in Londra, cealalta in Chicago).

Cunoscandu-l pe Walter Sickert in 1907, Gilman a devenit unul din membrii fondatori atat al grupului Fitzroy Street Group (in 1907), cat si al grupului Camden Town Group (in 1911). In acelasi timp a intrat in Allied Artists’ Association, s-a mutat in Letchworth, si a inceput sa arate influentele dupa lucrarile lui Vuillard si Sickert.

In 1910 a fost stimulat de prima expozitie post-impresionista de la Grafton Galleries si a vizitat Parisul cu Ginner. Curand a depasit tehnica  post-impresionista a lui Sickert si a iesit din umbra lui folosind culori mai puternice, sub influenta lui Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin si  Paul Signac . In 1913 a expus impreuna cu Gore si a devenit primul presedinte al London Group; si fiind identificat alaturi de Charles Ginner ca ‘Neo-Realist’, a expus alaturi de Ginner cu aceasta eticheta in 1914.

Gilman a vizitat Scandinavia in 1912 si 1913, si probabil ca a calatorit cu artistul William Ratcliffe, care avea rude acolo. Gilman a facut acolo studii ale mediului inconjurator si a pictat ‘Canal Bridge, Flekkefjord’, o descriere exacta, al carei subiect e posibil sa-l fi inspirat pe Vincent van Gogh in reprezentarea unui pod similar in Provence. Gilman a respins lucrarea lui Van Gogh cand a vazut-o pentru prima data, insa ulterior a devenit un mare admirator si conform cu Wyndham Lewis, avea carti postale cu lucrarea lui Van Gogh pe perete, iar cateodata agata si cate o lucrare de-a sa langa ele.

A predat la Westminster School of Art, apoi la o scoala fondata de el si de Ginner.

In 1917 Gilman s-a recasatorit.

A murit in Londra pe 12 februarie 1919, de gripa spaniola.
