From Émigré to Englishman: Fred Uhlman, ‘Painter of Dreams’
London based independent curator Nicola Baird speaks about German-born artist Fred Uhlman (1901-1985), who fled Nazi persecution to Paris and London, where he was celebrated for his ‘pictorial fantasies.’
In June 1940, Uhlman, along with thousands of other ‘enemy aliens’ was interned by the British government at Hutchinson Camp on the Isle of Man. After 1945 he became internationally known. A large-scale retrospective exhibition of his work was last held in London in 1968 and he has since been largely forgotten.
