Selected dates from September to November

Käthe Schuftan was a Jewish artist who escaped from Berlin in June 1939. Her work was linked with both Käthe Kollwitz and the Neue Sachlichkeit (New Objectivity) movement, including Otto Dix and George Grosz. She settled in Manchester where she exhibited at the Manchester Academy of Fine Arts, and with the Manchester Group which included L S Lowry. In her use of symbolism her work was linked with that of her friend Eugene Halliday, a student of Blake and Boehme.
