Talk: Art Books for All, from Vienna to London

Thursday, 18 July – 12:00pm Sotheby's, 1-2 Saint George Street, London, UK

Book Event FREE

Constance Kaine, daughter of Walter Neurath, co-founder of Thames & Hudson, and Elly Miller, daughter of Béla Horovitz, co-founder of the Phaidon Press will be in conversation with Anna Nyburg, who has researched the histories of both publishing houses. Horovitz and Neurath came to London from Vienna in 1938, when as Jews they were forced to flee from Nazi occupiers. Their daughters dedicated their careers to continuing their families’ art publishing companies.

This panel forms part of the Brave New Visions events programme. Brave New Visions tells the stories of the pioneering émigré dealers and publishers who helped turn London into a global centre for contemporary art in the 1940s-1960s.
