Out of Austria - Austrian Artists in Exile in Great Britain - 3D virtual exhibition by Ben Uri Research Unit

Out of Austria - Austrian Artists in Exile in Great Britain

Marking the 80th anniversary of the Anschluss (annexation of Austria), the exhibition Out of Austria brings together around 40 works by more than 20 Austrian artists who fled to Great Britain during the era of National Socialism, examining their experiences, careers, impact and legacy as émigré artists in the UK. It showcases some of the painters, sculptors and graphic artists, who fled to the UK, during this era, highlighting works 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 (some never previously exhibited) from private collections. The display features paintings, graphics, sculptures and ceramics by artists including Siegfried Charoux, Hugo Dachinger, Georg Ehrlich, Ernst Eisenmayer, Oskar Kokoschka, Marie-Louise von Motesiczky, Lucie Rie, Bruno Simon and Willi Soukop.
