This half-day conference, organised by Sotheby's Institute of Art - London and TIAMSA, The International Art Market Studies Association, will explore the experience, impact and significance of those art dealers who fled Nazi Europe and set up in the UK before or during the Second World War. In line with other aspects of culture and enquiry at this time, this experience of dislocation changed the art world significantly, as well as the status of particular artists and artistic movements, opening up channels for the dissemination of the new trends of the 1920s and 1930s. Short papers will be combined with a panel discussion; speakers include Richard Aronowitz, Cherith Summers, Fran Lloyd, Sarah McDougall, Lucy Wasensteiner, Sue Grayson Ford and Jutta Vinzent.
