Marking the 80th anniversary of the Anschluss (annexation of Austria), this exhibition brings together over 40 works by more than 20 Austrian artists who fled to the UK during the Nazi era. This exhibition examines their experiences, careers, impact and legacy as émigré artists in the UK. 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.
