Virtual Event Virtual Event

On Tuesday 21 June at 2.30pm, art historian Monica Bohm-Duchen will give an in-person guided tour of Postwar Modern: New Art in Britain, 1945-1965, a fascinating exhibition currently showing at Barbican Art Gallery, which brings together art produced in direct and indirect response to the upheaval and trauma of World War II. Of the artists featured, a substantial number were Jewish refugees, among them Frank Auerbach, Lucian Freud, Eva Frankfurther, Franciszka Themerson and Gustav Metzger. This event forms part of the Jewish Renaissance/Lyons Learning Project series entitled ‘Sacred and Profane: Jewish Art through the Ages’.
