Description from Ben Uri Gallery and Museum:
"Many prominent European artists-including George Grosz, Jacques Lipchitz, and Marc Chagall-resettled (permanently or temporarily) in the United States following the Nazis' rise to power in Germany or the outbreak of war. It has long been acknowledged that these exiled artists permanently altered the course of American art. This talk focuses on the ways in which curators, gallerists, and critics discussed and promoted the work of exiled artists-especially German and Jewish artists-in wartime America against a backdrop of anti-immigrant sentiment and rising antisemitism."
