Artbooks for all, from Vienna to London, Panel Discussion 

18 July 2019 12:00 pm


Emigre publishers: Phaidon/Gombrich and Thames& Hudson/World of Art.

Sotheby’s, 1 & 2 St George Street, London

Elly Miller, daughter of Béla Horovitz, co-founder of the Phaidon Press, and Constance Kaine, daughter of Walter Neurath, co-founder of Thames & Hudson, will be in conversation with Anna Nyburg, who has researched the histories of both publishing houses. Horovitz and Neurath came to London from Vienna in 1938, when as Jews they were forced to flee from Nazi occupiers. Their daughters dedicated their careers to continuing their families’ art publishing companies.


This panel forms part of the Brave New Visions events programme. Brave New Visions tells the stories of the pioneering émigré dealers and publishers who helped turn London into a global centre for contemporary art in the 1940s-1960s. It highlights their impact by showing the art they championed. This major exhibition, hosted by Sotheby’s, is part of Insiders/Outsiders, a year-long nationwide arts festival celebrating refugees from Nazi Europe and their indelible contribution to British culture.
