Benjamin Creme and the Circle around Jankel Adler

Thursday 11 July, 6.30pm

Gallery director, Jane England, will be giving a talk on Thursday evening at the Ben Uri Gallery and Museum, London. Entitled Benjamin Creme and the Circle of Jankel Adler, it will focus on the work of Glasgow-born artist Benjamin Creme (1922-2016), one of the artists who gathered around the émigré Polish artist Jankel Adler (1895-1949) in Glasgow and London in the 1940s. Two works by Benjamin Creme are included in the museum’s current exhibition, Jankel Adler: A ‘degenerate’ artist in Britain 1940-1949.
