Refugee Art Dealers in Britain: Lectures and Round Table

2 November 2:30 pm
Sotheby’s Institute of Art, 30 Bedford Square
London, WC1B 3EE United Kingdom
+ Google Map
£10 – £15

The aim of this event is to explore the experiences, impact and significance of those art dealers who fled Nazi Europe and set up in the UK before or during the Second World War. In line with other aspects of culture and enquiry at this time, this experience of dislocation changed the art world significantly as well as the status of particular artists and artistic movements, opening up channels for the dissemination of the new trends of the 1920s and 1930s. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the foundation of Sotheby’s Institute of Art, this event will combine short papers by experts in the field and a panel discussion which will contextualize the experiences and achievements of those who lived through these dramatic times.
