We hold Europe’s only collection principally dedicated to Jewish and emigrè artists whether refugees, or immigrants by choice, or as more often as a result of terror.
The Core Collection comprises of over 800 works by over 400 artists from 40 countries of birth and is supported by a wide ranging referece body of work.
The Pre-eminent Collection includes master works by our founder Lazar Berson; the famous including Jankel Adler, Frank Auerbach, David Bomberg, Marc Chagall, Sonia Delaunay, Jacob Epstein, Mark Gertler, George Grosz, Josef Herman, Peter Howson, Leon Kossoff, Max Liebermann, Kurt Scwitters, Chaïm Soutine, Isaac Rosenberg and Alfred Wolmark.
Side by side are fine examples by the now re-emerging reputations of those artists who fell into relative obscurity as a result of their forced journeys to escape tyranny or worse including Martin Bloch, Jacob Bornfriend, Dodo Burgner, Hugo Dachinger, Hans Feibusch, Eva Frankfurther, Alfred Lomnitz, Willi Rondas and Max Sokol and more.
