Finding Feibusch

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

An illustrated talk - via Zoom - on Hans Feibusch and his forgotten murals in churches all over London and the South East by Emma Rose Barber. Part of European Days of Jewish Heritage and Culture, organised by B'nai B'rith UK.

Hans Feibusch (1898-1998) was a superb visionary 20th-century artist few people have ever heard of. He was a German Jewish painter and sculptor who fled Nazi Germany to live in Britain from 1933 until his death.

Astonishingly, he is responsible for more murals in Church of England churches than any other artist in its entire history, yet he is only now beginning to receive the attention he deserves.

This talk will be a virtual tour of some of his ecclesiastical paintings with a particular focus on those he painted in austere, but striking 1950s' built churches in south-east London and east Sussex.
