Art Aiding Politics: Hampstead in the 1930's and 1940's
Thursday 30 January 2020

Burgh House and Hampstead Museum until 29th March 2020

Hampstead has been a place of refuge, reflection and community for centuries. This exhibition aims to show the response of some of its most creative residents to the tumultuous political events of the early twentieth century; from the Spanish Civil War to the rise of the Nazi party and the outbreak of the Second World War and beyond. Including art and artefacts relating to Roland Penrose and Lee Miller, Fred Uhlman, Milein Cosman, FHK Henrion and many others, this exhibition will examine the artists’ reactions to these events, and the communities of support that developed as a result.
