£3 – £4

Book Cover for ‘Albert Reuss in Mousehole, The Artist As Refugee’

Penlee House Museum, Penzance

A Talk by Susan Soyinka, Biographer

Albert Reuss (1889-1975) was a Jewish émigré artist. Born in Vienna, he fled to England in 1938 to escape Nazi persecution, losing family, possessions and his reputation as an artist. In 1948, he moved to Mousehole, Cornwall, where he continued to work as an artist, but his style changed dramatically, reflecting the trauma he had suffered. His works are held in numerous galleries world-wide, including Newlyn Art Gallery. Soyinka here recounts this lonely and isolated artist’s struggle to develop his art and to survive, a story full of human drama and tragedy, set against the background of world historic events.


7.30 pm. Admission: Members £3.00, Non-members £4.00.
