Out of chaos

by Sarah MacDougall | 27 July 2015
Category: Art & Design
Synopsis
Marking the remarkable century of Ben Uri Gallery and Museum, from humble beginnings in London's East End in 1915 to a fully-fledged mainstream art museum, under its banner 'Art, Identity and Migration', this publication vividly illustrates rarely seen masterworks from its collection by some of the greatest artists of the twentieth century, including Soutine, Chagall, Auerbach, Bomberg, Kitaj and Kossoff. Further highlights include the 'Whitechapel Boys'; Les Peintres Juifs de L'Ecole de Paris, Official War artists from both conflicts; mid-century émigrés influencing the direction of the arts, and contemporary artists making ground-breaking work across new media. This unique collection, primarily of artists born into the Jewish faith, many shaping modern British, European and American art history, represents a distinct visual survey of artistic and social life in Britain and the cultural heritage of British Jewry. A range of texts provides a fascinating context for a collection born 'Out of Chaos'. Contents: Chairman's Foreword: Out of Chaos: Shaping the future from the past; Introduction to the Ben Uri Collection: A century of engagement with British and European Art Catalogue; 1 Whitechapel Boys; 2 Soutine, Chagall and the School of Paris; 3 Forced Journeys; 4 Postwar; 5 School of London; Chronology of Ben Uri; Notes; Bibliography; Legacy of Teachers.
