The Isokon Gallery, London

Born George Teltscher in Vienna, Adams studied at the Bauhaus under Gropius, Itten, Kandinsky and Schlemmer and arrived in London in 1938. Following internment in Australia he returned to England and contributed to the war effort in map making and pamphlet design. He took part in the Festival of Britain (1951) and, although not well-known today, became a key figure in bringing Bauhaus ideas and pedagogy to Britain as a prolific graphic designer and long-standing teacher at the London College of Printing.
