Ben Uri Gallery - The London Jewish Museum Of Art

BEN URI GALLERY, The London Jewish Museum of Art is Europe's only dedicated Jewish Museum of Art working in partnership with both secular and Jewish Museums in the UK and internationally. Conceived in 1914, it was founded in 1915 in the East End of London by the charismatic Russian-born Jewish artist Lazar Berson. It has a fascinating and often illustrious 90 year history and is this country's longest established Jewish arts and cultural institution.

It is no coincidence that the histories of the Ben Uri and that of twentieth-century British art are so closely intertwined; the blossoming of the immigrant generations of Jewish Artists was mirrored by the development of modern painting in Britain. The Ben Uri supported and in turn was supported by those very artists. The same outburst of creativity, which burgeoned in London's East End Jewish community, and gave this country so many of its 'masters' including the group now known and recognised as 'The Whitechapel Boys' also gave birth to the Ben Uri.

Ben uri museum launches world tour of ground breaking nazi looted art exhibition
16 SEPTEMBER - 25 NOVEMBER 2007

'AUKTION 392: RECLAIMING THE GALERIE STERN DUSSELDORF'

"It was not simply the largest genocide in history but a meticulous and wholesale cultural and heritage cleansing in the name of ayranization and ethnic purification. This unique exhibition raises issues of how, in a modern society, art collectors, the art trade and government address and redress the consequences of spoliation. In particular Auktion 392 focuses on the history and current issues of redress from the titanic scale of Nazi looting, forced sales and dispersal of a people’s property and their cultural iconography from the expanse of mainland Europe from 1935 to 1945." David Glasser, Chair Ben Uri Gallery & Museum, July 2007.
