Brave New Visions tells the story of the pioneering émigré art dealers who transformed the London gallery scene, introducing artists such as Naum Gabo, Oskar Kokoschka, Kurt Schwitters and Francis Bacon to post-war Britain. The vision of such influential dealers as Lea Bondi Jaray, Erica Brausen, Andras Kalman, Frank Lloyd and Harry Fischer, Annely Juda and Charles and Peter Gimpel will be shown through key paintings and sculptures by the artists they championed. These include William Scott, Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth, Gillian Ayres, Frank Auerbach, Lynn Chadwick and Graham Sutherland. Fellow émigrés led a parallel revolution in the staid world of British publishing, providing a platform for European scholarship in affordable art books which raised standards of design and reproduction. Phaidon and Thames & Hudson remain leaders in this field.

EXHIBITION FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC MONDAY TO FRIDAY 9AM TO 4.30PM
SOTHEBY’S, ST GEORGE STREET GALLERY 1-2 ST GEORGE STREET, LONDON W1S 2FE

The exhibition is part of INSIDERS/OUTSIDERS, a year-long nationwide arts festival celebrating refugees from Nazi Europe and their impact on British culture. Participating venues include Tate Britain, the National Portrait Gallery, the Wallace Collection, Glyndebourne and Pallant House Gallery.
