Hope Leaving Schloss Schönhagen (detail), 1934

Online Event

On Monday 15 March at 6pm, Charlotte Grant will talk about her grandfather Martin Bloch (1883-1954), a German-Jewish artist who came to Britain (via Denmark) as a refugee in 1934. Influential as a colourist and teacher, his paintings, which comprise dynamic still lifes, landscapes, and cityscapes, often with figures, are found in public and private collections in Britain, America, Europe and Israel. This talk will focus on the theme of belonging, looking at Bloch’s relationship to the places, people and landscapes he lived amongst and painted in.

The event will be chaired by David Herman, whose artist father Josef Herman, was a good friend of Martin Bloch.
