This ‘Show and Tell’ event celebrates the halfway mark of a major project – generously funded by the Marie-Louise von Motesiczky Charitable Trust – to catalogue and digitise three such émigré collections. They comprise the extensive papers of art historian, J. P. Hodin, the sketchbooks of artist Jankel Adler and the family papers of curator and publisher, David Mayor. A short talk will be given by Archive Curator Peter Eaves, and a range of material displayed from these and other collections.
Following the rise of Fascism in Vienna in the 1930s, brother and sister Edith Tudor-Hart (1908–73) and Wolfgang Suschitzky (1912–2016) found sanctuary in Britain, where both became leading documentary photographers. This display offers a rare opportunity to see a substantial group of photographs by brother and sister together.
