Friedrich Nagler: A Personal Mythology
13 June to 17 September 2019
Friedrich Nagler (1920-2009) was a Jewish émigré and self-taught artist born in Vienna, Austria. He escaped Nazi occupation in 1938 and was deported from England to Canada as an ‘enemy alien’. After the war he returned to England and developed his passion for making art. This display shows some of the many thousands of pieces he created, some of which were inspired by his flight from Nazi-occupied Austria to England.
The display is part of the Insiders/Outsiders festival a year-long nationwide arts festival celebrating the enriching contribution of Jewish refugees to British culture, and is the result of a partnership with Outside In.
