Location: Abbot Hall Kendal

This display focuses on the work of two German artists who came to the Lake District during the Second World War.

Hilde Goldschmidt was a successful Expressionist artist and Kurt Schwitters is today recognised as one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century. Considered by many to be the first multimedia artist, working in paint, collage, poetry and installations, Schwitters was seen by the Nazi’s to be a ‘Degenerate’ artist.

Goldschmidt and Schwitters met in the Lake District and inspired each other to continue and grow their practice in Cumbria.
