Works are primarily from the Ben Uri Collection, with key external loans from public collections including Bishop Otter Gallery, University of Chichester, the Marie-Louise von Motesiczky Trust and Senate House Library, as well as works from private collections. Included are paintings, graphics, sculptures and ceramics by Hugo Dachinger, Ernst Eisenmayer, Oskar Kokoschka, Marie-Louise von Motesiczky, Georg Ehrlich, Willi Soukop, Siegfried Charoux and Lucie Rie.
