Albert Reuss (1889-1975) was a Jewish émigré artist. Born in Vienna, he fled to England in 1938 to escape Nazi persecution, losing family, possessions and his reputation as an artist. In 1948, he moved to Mousehole, Cornwall, where he continued to work as an artist, but his style changed dramatically, reflecting the trauma he had suffered.

Hampstead’s Pioneers of Modern Art

13 April 11:00 am
Hampstead Tube Station, Hampstead High Street
London, London NW3 1QG United Kingdom
+ Google Map
£9 – £12

In the first half of the 20th century Hampstead was home to some of the era's most pioneering artists. We will walk in the footsteps of the Slade School artists. In Downshire Hill we learn of the artistic Carline family and will also discuss the role that Roland Penrose, Margaret Gardiner and Fred and Diana Uhlman played in the art world in the years leading up to, and during, the Second World War. We walk to Belsize Park to learn of the Modernists including Henry Moore, Pierre Mondrian and Barbara Hepworth whom Herbert Read described as living as a “nest of gentle artists” and conclude with the refugee designers who stayed at the Isokon flats.
